Troels left his old life with a girlfriend, a comfy apartment and full-time job to take a new direction in life. He started working as a woodworking apprentice and moved in to CPH Village.

"This is my sun-lamp. It wakes me up with bird sounds and gradually illuminates the room. It’s my own Sci-Fi orb."

From Fyn, Denmark, Troels is a 30 year old furniture apprentice. Naturally, he build all the furniture in his apartment himself.

He also holds a Bachelor in Informatics and Communication and worked with digitizing films at DR before embarking on the furniture career.

 
 

He is vegan (most of the time), plays the guitar, cycles, takes photos, does yoga and is passionate about making quality furniture.

He got inspired by Marie Kondo and folds his clothes according to her dogma. “It helps visualising what you own to make it easier to find that old favorite t-shirt.”

Just like Marie Kondo

“I really like to keep it minimal. I want to be thoughtful about my consumption because it gives me less to worry about.”  

This attitude stimulates him to consider what it is that gives meaning in his life and what makes him happy.


Functionality

Everything serves a double purpose at his place, and he is more than happy to showcase his container-living hacks that make the most out of a small space.

Compact dreams

“I would like to build my own compact house, maybe on wheels or a container like this? I would love to grow my own vegetables and explore a new way of living.”

His dream is to one day start his own furniture company, and his current home serves as a playground for clever solutions.
