Peter Johansen graduated in furniture and spatial design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2004. His work often involves modelling and 1:1 scaling. His work is inspired by everyday life and his immediate surroundings. Peter Johansen says himself that his projects are characterized by logic and often contain a flirtation with the trivial. As the son of a Norwegian father and a Swedish mother, and having lived his entire life in Denmark, Peter Johansen is Scandinavian to the core. "Scandinavian in spirit, modern in expression," is how Peter Johansen describes his own designs.
