THOMAS WOLTMANN 

I’m an award winning danish furniture designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. I graduated with a BA from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018. I design and produce my furniture in Denmark, primarily from my own studio and workshop in Copenhagen, but also in collaboration with local manufactures and craftsmen. Through my work I strive to challenge our perception of furniture - its function, materiality and form language.

Work

2020 - now:          Independent product & concept designer

                     

Since 2020, I have worked on a number of furniture projects. Including the Re-C chair, Cut - Out Armchair and freelance projects. Many of these I produce and sell in my studio and workshop in Copenhagen.

2020 - now:          Founder & project manager, VandrerHistorier (urban legends)

                     

Founder & project manager of VandrerHistorier; a free digital cultural dissemination platform. This platform combines outdoor life with cultural dissemination and will consist of culture and nature audiowalks connected

to hiking trails and routes around Denmark. If everything goes according to plan and we obtain funding, it will be launched in the autumn of 2021.

2019:          Junior Architect, Rosan Bosch

                     

At Rosan Bosch I was hired to work on the concept and design development of a sensory home in Denmark for mentally and physically disabled people. My work here involved researching the needs and conditions necessary to create such a home. It also involved designing the grand spatial layout of the home, as well as designing custom elements and furniture, for the specific rooms. Next to this project i also worked on other large spatial projects particularly within the educational field in both Denmark and abroad.   

2017:            Design intern: SUPERFLEX, Copenhagen 

 

At SUPERFLEX I worked on projects from the initial sketching phase to technical drawings and final production. One of my main projects was the design development; from research to concept and sketching of a large installation in the Turbine Hall in London called ‘One, Two, Three swing'.

Education

2014-2018:  Design Academy Eindhoven, department: Man and Leisure
