About

Portait

Steenfatt’s furniture and product designs are created in an intuitive and experimental process that tests and challenges material properties. He works with a wide variety of materials, including self-invented composites. Serendipity plays a key role in his experiments with materials, textures and alternative working processes where random developments are allowed to influence the outcome. Combining this intuitive method with systematic analysis, he merges industrial and hand-crafted qualities in an industrialized one-off production approach.

Nikolaj Steenfatt was born in Aabenraa, Denmark in 1987 and now lives and works in Copenhagen. He graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2013. His work has been honoured with scholarships and design awards, and is represented at Designmuseum Danmark and Trapholt – Museum of Modern Art and Design.
Nikolaj Steenfatt is also a part of the duo Edvard & Steenfatt with designer Jonas Edvard. Based on a common interest in material based design, they try to challenge the boundaries of the inborn materiality in every object they do.
