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.

Sunset by Nendo


Japanese designer Nendo has produced a collection of candles which slowly reveal color and scent as it burns. Called ‘Sunset’ candles, each appear white at first, but once lit, the heat reacts to the center and begins changing to yellow then orange, red, purple, and finally to blue. The idea was influenced by the shifting shades of light during sunset; reflecting the soft transitioning of hues. Each color is accompanied by a scent: bergamot, lemongrass, sweet marjoram, lavender, and geranium. By combining scent and sight, the candle not only provides illumination, but represents the passage of time.
