Trent Jansen grew up in Kiama, a small town on the South East Coast of Australia. He graduated from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Design…following a period of study at the Industrial Design School of the University of Alberta, Canada.
In late 2004 he opened his own studio in Sydney. Jansen’s practice is focused on creating honest and poetic sustainable design, developing pieces that aim to foster a lasting relationship with the user. Instead of a disposable object, the work becomes a life long companion.
