John studied at the School of Design in Copenhagen, Denmark, but he “didn’t really follow the traditional way of thinking design at that time. I was sort of the black sheep at the school.” From 1999 to 2006, he was the designer on the popular TV show Changing Homes in Denmark. “I was seen as the mad designer. Some even have called me the father of the hipster culture in Copenhagen… as I used whatever I could find as material and things normally meant to throw out, to change it into fun and cool stuff.”
For the last five years he has been a guest designer for the Norwegian show Time for Homes (Tid for Hem). He recently decided to follow his dream to do “real” design and to have his own production company. La Vague Dorée was born.
