ABOUT

My name is Niels Sylvester. I was born in 1988 and come from Denmark. I have studied industrial design at Kolding School of Design.

I have a passion for good stories with depth and structure, which I seek to integrate into my work within design. I like to immerse into the past, mix it with the present and create the future. I constantly seek to learn from human needs and peculiarities in both physical and mental levels.

I believe design is about; exploring, understanding, creating, conveying, surprising and improving.
