Peter Brandt studied at the Royal Institute of Art before he began studies in interior architecture and furniture design at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm (88/89) and at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, where he studied restoration.
Brandt’s degree project from Konstfack, Kuli folding table made of laser cut metal and massive oak was launched by Lammhults as a part of the manufacturers project Unga Formgivare (eng. Young Designers). Kuli was awarded the Excellent Swedish Design Award in 1991.
After completing his studies, Brandt was the first external designer to join the Swedish manufacturer Blå Station, when he designed the stool Bimbo in 1994. The stackable stool is made in one piece of laminated birch and received the Excellent Swedish Design Award in the year of its release and the Forsnäs prize in 1995. The stool is represented at the Swedish Nationalmuseum.
Peter Brandt has also made furniture designs for Nola, where the outdoor furniture group Hjorthagen is the most prolific. For several years, Brandt worked with interior architecture at TEA- Thomas Eriksson Architects in Stockholm.
