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 1987 and now lives and works in Copenhagen. He graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2013, and His work has been honoured with Danmarks Nationalbank’s Anniversary Foundation and the Grete Jalk Honorary Grant among others.
