THOMAS WOLTMANN 

For me design is a way of thinking and not just beautiful forms, compelling lines and attractive colours. The values and thoughts that go into a project are the keystones for any work I do. I ask myself what the goal or purpose is. How will this add value to people or to the planet. These values are then made into a story which I visualize into a concept or product, thus manifesting my visions on to the physical world.  

 

I'm a 26 year old designer from Denmark, with a Bachelor of Arts from Design Academy Eindhoven. Here I have explored many areas of design and I've found a particular interest in design thinking. How you integrate complex and conceptual ideas into conventional design development and reach into the every day life of people. Through my work I always strive to question our way of life and to bring new thoughts and positive change into this world and the people who live in it.

Work

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'.
