Nicklas's life is all about visual experiences: those of brands, cultures, creativity and himself. His work moves between the design world, the floral industry and art photography. Nicklas's work has been widely exhibited and published.
During 2013–2018 he lived in Shanghai, China working with introducing Nordic brands to the Asian market - primarily on Alibaba platforms (Tmal) and Tencents’s WeChat platform focusing on e-com and omnichannel solutions. During this period he started working on the flower lexicon; Floriography- which has been showcased around the world. He also made The Asia Plates - a series of porcelain plates with photographic print. They were exhibited at the legendary Japanese store ISETAN.
After China, he moved to Denmark and lived there for two years. Based on the experiences he had in Shanghai and the new life in Denmark the BaroqueIkebana project was born. This project took him to a Japanese TV show and several different clients that wanted their products in the unique world that Nicklas created.
