Christian Flindt

Christian Flindt (1972-) graduated with an MAA and MDD from Aarhus School of Architecture in 2002. He then started his own design company in 2003. Here, he placed high emphasis on communication between people, and his focus on this area finds expression in his approach to re-evaluating furniture. He wants his furniture to inspire people to make new connections.

Christian Flindt’s fresh and daring designs in conventional constructions prove that he is a designer with the courage to experiment. He develops innovative furniture and through his work with LED design, for example, he succeeds in blending disparate fields such as lighting and furniture design.

Christian Flindt began working with Louis Poulsen in 2006, since when he has developed the Flindt Bollard, the LP Xperi, the LP Grand, and the Flindt Wall. The latter won the Danish Design Award in 2019.

Christian Flindt is also known for his sculptural and rightfully praised chairs: Orchid, Ripple Chair and Light Lounger. He has held exhibitions and participated in trade fairs all over the world, and has been awarded a string of prizes including: the Bo Bedre Design Award 2005 and the Bolig Magasinet Design Award for the Flindt range he created for Louis Poulsen, the States Art Foundation Kunstfonds three year workgrant in 2012, the Knud V. Engelhardts Memorial scholarship in 2013, the ELFORSK Price in 2014 by the Danish Department of Energy and Electricity with "Flindt Bollard" for Louis Poulsen, and in 2015 the Kold Christensens honorary scholarship.
