favorite items on your desk?
my favourite item is without a doubt the small marble egg. it reminds me of new beginnings and the beauty in the simple things.
what is the most important item on your desk, besides your computer?
the most important thing is the black book in which i keep all notes and ideas and very long lists of things to do.
show us your current moodboard.
my moodboard is 3-dimentionel. i collect different things for inspiration and make a universe out of it on my desk. it can be pictures, stones, plants and so on.
where is your creative spot?
actually i dont have a creative spot in the showroom. i get much more inspired of the environment around me. christianshavn has so much inspiration to offer. it has the finest local feeling, the water, the diversity of people and a lot of historical buildings. at christiania i think all the houses are such an inspiration because they stand as a reminder, of the fact that it is possible to choose a different lifestyle.
what is your dream item for the office desk?
my dream item would be if my bed was actually integrated in the desk. how nice would it be to be lying there all day working from the duvet? my yoga teacher says that we are made to walk and lie down. not sit on a chair or stand still for hours.
-so it would be a pretty healthy way to work I guess.
how does a normal day look like at your office?
a normal day is a combination of the styling jobs and the web shop. maybe i start the morning meeting with a photographer, go collect some items for a shoot and then get back to the showroom and handle the orders in the web shop.
what is your life philosophy?
my philosophy is to try and see things in a bigger perspective and not be a small person driven by a big ego. i’m so inspired by the people i meet, who has love and compassion to give. shortly: ”character is how you treat people who can do nothing for you” .
