Head of David Lewis Designers

Graduated in 1993 from the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture, Department of Industrial Design.

When not abroad, he worked alongside pyrotechnician Lars Hoffmann Barfod making handcrafted fireworks for Tivoli, Copenhagen’s world famous amusement park. In 1996 he joined David Lewis Designers as an industrial designer.

Torsten Valeur’s first design at David Lewis Designers was the BeoCom 2 for Bang & Olufsen in 1997. A design inspired by the traditional Japanese saw that Valeur had encountered on his previous travels. He has since continued designing award-winning audio systems, telephones and multimedia products for Bang & Olufsen as well as products for other international clients such as Asus, Elica and Scholtes.

Primed to take over from founder and mentor David Lewis while Lewis was still alive, Torsten Valeur was appointed Partner in 2007. In 2011 he became Head of David Lewis Designers.

Torsten Valeur’s design approach is one that pursues the original and new. He aspires to find solutions that are surprising at first glance and then quickly accepted as obvious and intuitive.

Over the years, Torsten Valeur has been a prominent profile in the Danish and international design community. He is a renowned speaker on topics relating to product design and branding just as he has contributed to several design publications.
