Animulas is run by Johan Hovgaard Simonsen, Master of Arts in Architecture from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Master of Design from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Aside from architecture and design, Johan has worked with jewelry from a very young age leading to the foundation of Animulas which from Latin translates into ‘a little piece of soul’.
Combining these disciplines, Animulas has since developed a diverse portfolio which includes own brand projects, custom artefact and jewelry design for the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, the official confrérie of Champagne, and immense interior design work for Marriott International on various of the group’s hotel brands.
Key to Animulas is maintaining good relationships with partners and clients where at all times everyone involved should be comfortable with the direction headed. Designing should be fun, lean and educating.
Animulas is owned by Johan Hovgaard Simonsen and is registered in Denmark with CVR number DK36617632.
Animulas is registered with the Danish Precious Metal Control operated by FORCE Technology under the stamp ‘ULA’, which is assigned to all pieces in precious metal along with a material fineness stamp.
