Stefan Lindfors graduated as Interior Architect & Furniture Designer from the University of Art and Design Helsinki, in 1988. In 1992 the Finnish-born designer received the largest cultural award in the Nordic countries at the time -the Väinö Tanner Trailblazer Award-, the jury called him a Renaissance Man and the London Times wrote: “Calling Lindfors an Industrial Designer would be like calling a Stravinsky Symphony a nice song.”
He rummaged on in the borderline jungle of art, design and architecture, and in 2001 the New York Times declared Lindfors‘ sculpture installation on the façade of the Gershwin Hotel a New Landmark on Manhattan. In 2002 Stefan wrote and directed his first film for telecom corp. DNA Finland. Two years later he was honored with the London Kerrang! “Best Music Video 2004" Award for his film “Funeral of Hearts” by HIM.
Today Stefan Lindfors takes on a wide range of projects all over the globe as Interior Architect, Designer, Sculptor and Director and aside of his exhibitions and other endeavors Lindfors has completed projects for companies such as Alessi, Amnesty, Arabia, Artek, Dna, Hackman, Helsinki City Transport, Iittala, Ikea, Ingo Maurer GmbH, Lundia, Marimekko, Martela, Neste, Nokia, Sony Playstation, Swatch, Vitra, Warner Music, and most recently Plastex.
