With the aim of carrying on the Scandinavian design traditions, Michael christensen designs timeless, characteristic and quality products. The characteristics of his design are great attention to functionality and simplicity with a special awareness of sustainability. As a part of his approach to sustainability, he explores different joint methods having a constant focus on manufacturing and packaging.
Made by Michael strives to leave the viewer with a little moment of childish wonder and joy. The pure wood construction of his very first product launch, Töjbox, evokes these feelings. Without any screws, nails or glue, Michael’s true love for the wooden material becomes distinctly.
