raduation exhibition in Trinitatis ChurchHis training as cabinet maker and his education the Danish School of Design have been decisive for this reccurrently prize-winning designer. His work is thus characterised by the confident hand of the crafts
man, an eye for detail, and thorough knowledge of furniture construction principles. And, simultaneously, his design education steps into character. One senses a generous creative excess in his models. With its focus on functionality and simplicity, this
excess points to his anchorage in the Danish design tradition . But also there is the more personal aspect which first and foremost signals a sense of humour and a certain degree of laid back attitude.
