About Benjamin Nordsmark : Benjamin Nordsmark is a Furniture creater, Artist and Cabinetmaker and by combining his education and skills with his creative mind he makes sculptural furnitures in limited editions and a variation of different art pieces. By education he is Cabinetmaker and has a Masters of Fine Art from the Royal Danish Academy of Art from 2011. He had decided upon these two educations from the age of 14. By working in a variety of different places such as the Design Academy, Technical school and workshops in different parts of the world, he has built up a solid body of craftmanship that seems to show no limit to his mind. Most of his inspiration is found in other areas beside design: especially art, architecture and different cultures that all have a great influence on his creations. His approach of making production pieces into unique items with a high sense of quality and strong eye for details, has changed remarkably over time.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Benjamins focus is to create objects with a strong visual appearance that impresses and makes people think and possibly even changes preconceived thoughts.

With a strong passion he attempts to view things from another prospective,
with new aproaches and working methods that can challenge his craftmanship to grow even further to make unique items.
