Thomas Bentzen is a Copenhagen-based designer, working to infuse his designs with a refined simplicity. His studio was founded in 2010, creating designs that have received international recognition at fairs and exhibitions all over the world.
On His Design Philosophy
“I like to create objects that are functional and simple, while satisfying a human need when in use and creating joy when idle. For me, durability means quality, form, and functionality and putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.”
On Scandinavian Design
“Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality, comprised with poetry. I like it that way. I think Scandinavian designers have succeeded in bringing their heritage into a time where we no longer stand next to the cabinetmaker, but are challenged and thrilled by new materials and new ways to produce.”
