The Perfect Snooze
Presented with the task of designing a signature line of cushions for Fredericia Furniture to accompany some of their highly regarded sofas, Johannes Torpe Studios was faced with the question; what is it that defines a well-designed cushion?
"True luxury is not having any signal on your cell phone!"
At the 2014 New York Times International Luxury Conference in Miami Johannes joined J. Allen Smith, CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and architect Massimiliano Fuksas in a panel discussion about the luxury consumer. The conversation is moderated by Vanessa Friedman, Fashion Editor at The New York Times, and is a fascinating and generous insight into the minds of three masters of luxury experiences.

Analogue or digital? Perhaps both? This might be one of the most important considerations when designing product or consumer experiences in the future. Listen to this week’s Elektronista DK on Radio24syv, hosted by Christiane Vejlø and hear Johannes elaborate on how tactility and digital technology combined can deliver a well-executed consumer experience. As a bonus you will get to know Johannes’ favourite aircraft and a little about a guy named 'Data Max' from his hometown.
Spoiler alert: It's very entertaining, but unfortunately in Danish so non-Danes may not be able to appreciate it!

The Johannes Torpe Studios Team
For some time we have wanted to share some more about all the talents who occupy the space at Johannes Torpe Studios. We asked each of our employees to chose one item that represents both themselves and their work at the studio. Each one has a little story behind it...
The Business of Product Design: The Spatial Context
Through the identification of the needs of our client and customer segments, Johannes Torpe Studios has created a value proposition that stems from our speciality in design; branded space. This business model has the ability to enhance the holistic nature of the space itself. It means that each spatial design is created with a one-of-a-kind collection of furniture that fits into the concept seamlessly, therefore becoming a leverage to the design of the space and providing a high degree of client satisfaction.
Last Thursday was an exciting day at Johannes Torpe Studios. We invited some of our close friends, clients and partners for a studio reception that focused on the nature of 'experience design'.
A Chair You Can Wear
Johannes Torpe Studios has teamed up with Kvadrat to create a product design with a twist - a wearable piece of furniture!
The Space We Occupy
Johannes Torpe Studios' specialty lies in the creation of branded spaces; the 360 degree experience of a brand within the spatial context. Hence, it is no surprise that the space in which we work and create in every day is designed to be a reflection of us as a company and brand.
Our recently-renovated studio was envisioned to be conducive to communication and, of course, creativity. The general design aesthetic is one of openness and simplicity, with a splash of colour and playfulness.
