Young Danish Furniture Designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark

Elly Feldstein is curious and open-minded in her work and likes to experiment with materials to explore and take advantage of their properties when designing. When developing a design, it is important for her to consider the experience that is wanted through the furniture and how it connects to its surroundings and user. When creating a piece of furniture, she thinks about its life. Therefore, functionality, aesthetics, and curiosity are important. She believes these elements are essential to enhance the connection between furniture and user and thereby expand the life of the furniture. It is a thought of sustainability as a natural choice in what, how, and why we design.
