Emil Thorup

Handvärk was launched in 2015 by autodidact designer and architect, Emil Thorup, and the studio’s minimalist aesthetic of dark leather, marble and brass generated international acclaim. Emil collaborates with the Danish-owned award-winning practice LW Design, working on hotel designs and residential architecture. He recently developed a series of prefabricated luxury villas, an idea based on his first residential design, the private residence, Nordic Noir. He is currently working on Handvärk's next collection, a crystal white universe constructed in slate, granite, rose gold and velvet.
