We’re a Nordic design collective, dedicated to nurturing the next generation of emerging talent in the design world. At 3DaysofDesign, we were thrilled to launch our new designer (and Dane) Troels Flensted and his brilliant limited edition Poured Collection.
A designer fascinated by materials and colour, Troels creates pieces that sit at the intersection of sculpture and function. His Poured Collection was sparked by a desire to visualise the making process. The material is mixed with a small amount of pigment, which is poured into a mould and creates something completely unique when it flows together.
Troels’ objects are simple, colourful, honest and thoughtfully made — just like Empirical’s cans. Empirical custom make everything themselves, down to the equipment and the machinery in their distillery. As a design collective committed to championing innovation and craftsmanship — with all our pieces made to order and customisable — this is why we were so excited to collaborate with these flavour wizards. We love that design is a part of Empirical’s approach to everything they do — it’s in their DNA.
At our three-day event at VinSupernaturel, we offered our guests Empirical’s good-looking CAN02 with its distinctive hot pink exterior. We love the can’s simple design, which allows its ingredients and flavour — a heady mix of sour cherry, blackcurrant buds, young pine cones, walnut wood and maqaw peppercorn — to sing. An intense red in colour, it was inspired by Belgian lambics, which are sour, fruity beers. A couple of those and you really felt the party.
