Troels’ magic


Danish designer Troels Flensted first appeared on the scene of design when he was selected to represent Danish design in 2016 at the prestigious trade fair Maison et Objet in Paris. He was named Talent of the Year and it was the start of a very promising career.


His signature collection POURED COLLECTION consists of trays, bowls & plates, is precisely the result of 2 years of experimentation and research. the product itself is a combination of mineral powder, water-based acrylics, and pigments mixed together producing a texture ready to be molded. the different patterns are determined by the quantity of pigment added to the mixture and by the way, the mixture is poured into the mold. the final pattern appears as the different ingredients are combined, which is the hardest part to master.

Troels’ professional journey moves at an impressive speed. He was awarded Talent of the year 2017 at Design Awards in Denmark and his work has been exhibited at some of the most respected design fairs across Europe.



His Poured Collection is available on He is a new designer to follow and YAD CHERI is following closely.

Poetic Rain Bottle Installation by Nendo for Maison & Objet Paris September 5th – 9th 2014



Created for the 2014 Fall edition of Maison & Objet in Paris, who asked designers to consider the relationship between language and design, the word rain was chosen for its many nuances in Japanese, a language that has dozens of words for rain depending on the condition and time of day.



The exhibit consists of 20 clear acrylic bottles lined-up, each containing a different kind of ‘rain’. ‘Kirisame’, ‘biu’ and ‘kosame’ refer to different degrees of fine drizzle, while ‘niwaka-ame’ is a sudden downpour.



‘Mizore’ is sleet, and a ‘yudachi’ falls in the evening. ‘Kisame’ is rain that drips from the ends of tree branches, and ‘kaiu’ is rain that falls mixed with dust and pollen


Seasonal rains were also included, from the ‘samidare’ that falls in the spring, to ‘shigure’, rain specific to autumn and winter.



“By exhibiting twenty different kinds of ‘rain’, we hoped to express Japanese culture’s unique relationship to nature and the depth of this relationship.” says Nendo.

Elsewhere. Inspiration at Maison & Objet

An invitation to distant inner journeys. A desire to get away and a wish for openness to the world are animating design and the art of living. Traveling coolness is looking for new lands, unseen vistas, far-off spots where adventure and wonder are at hand. Globetrotters and nomads, amblers and bushwhackers are heading out to discover the Other and sketching the shifting cartography of a mobile, fluid, cosmopolitan and more human world. Guaranteed disorientation.
