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 220 floor lamp, the Flindt 220 pendant, the
Flindt 475 pendant, the Flindt bollard and the LP Grand pendant.
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 in
2005, 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
