Daniel Enoksson Studio was founded in June 2008 by Daniel Enoksson, after graduating from Beckmans College of Design.
While working primarily within the fields of product design and interior architecture, Daniel aims to apply subtlety, enrichment and reformation in his projects.
The red thread in his work is to create value for both the user and producer.
As a former electrician he combines the skills from working on a construction site and the qualities from being a designer.
He considers every commission a challenge and strives to develop the project together with the client to create durable and timeless result.
Read our interview where he reveals a bit more about him-self.
A · Firstly, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a Designer and interior Architect when I’m working. When not I try to enjoy life in general with good food, traveling and spending time with my family.
B · What’s your favourite part of the design process?
Finding a surface or a material that I discover a new application for.
Wrap – paper bin for company David design
As the name reviles the inspiration comes from the simplicity of a wrapped paper. In this case we have used a piece of stamped leather and created a discrete and sober paper-bin.
C · Please tell us more about your art and design background and what made you become an artist and designer?
I try to maintain a high quality both on the expression and the finished product. I used to be an electrician but it was way to uninspiring, as a matter of fact my co-workers sometimes thought I was going to lose it cause of boredom. So I went to a whole lot of predatory educations studying photography, art, visual communication and metal design. I ended up at Beckman’s college of design where I now teach from time to time.
D · Where do you get inspiration?
Travelling in countries that still have the manufacturing right on the street, where you can see a vase or a chair being made by the craftsman right in front of you. Then of course from litterateur and a great deal of inspiration comes from experiencing architecture. E · What was the movie or book that impressed you the most? I don’t like movies in particular but when I choose to watch one I want to experience a mood like in ex Drive, or any Wes Anderson movies.
Nudo – for Mitab
A swivel barstool with the intention to create a robust and practical product for a demanding environment such as a bar or a restaurant. Nudo can rotate 360 degrees, the seat out of polyurethane is durable and easily wiped clean. The base is out of steel and coated with a tough powder coat to prevent shock damage.
Our aim has been to provide the barstool with a raw and graphic appearance to express the durability and toughness when handling this product.
The barstool also encourages dynamic sitting, with the benefit of obtaining the natural posture when seated. Usually in a sitting position you tend to crumble but the sit-angel activates the body’s muscle without tensing up.
F · Can you describe your style, how has that style developed over the years?
Style may not be the thing I would use for my design, rather the prevailing characteristics of the company I’m working with. Together we will create a product with the intention to solve a problem or fill a need. Of course the product will be affected by the company and the designer accordingly to the skill of working with the material or the concept of a product. Styles will come and go as far as I’m concerned.
G · What are you working on at the moment?
A Cheramic project I really can’t discuss at the moment, but I just finished a leather paper-bin for Swedish manufacturer David design that turned out very nice. I also released a barstool for Mitab during Stockholm Furniture Fair 2014, and are now developing a bar table to go with it.

H · For you what makes a product rare?
Hard question really, id say you just know it’s a really good product even though everyone else may think this and that but you just love it.
I · What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I’m a really good surfer, whom will be in the line-up at the break of dawn.
