DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

2012 ANDERS NØRGAARD

 

Anders Nørgaard took everything he learned about comfort and functionality
from the great Danish designers that went before him and distilled this
knowledge into ‘Kone’. A simple yet oh so striking silhouette, combined with
perfect support in all the right places. Be warned, you will never want to get
up again.

Anders Nørgaard

Anders Nørgaard literally learned at the feet of the masters. Growing up in Aarhus, Denmark, he was surrounded by the Danish architects and designers of the 50s and 60s, who were part of his parents’ circle of friends. As a young boy, he would spend his holidays at their workshops, absorbing knowledge and skills. This helped him in later life, as a designer, to resolve the tension between theoretical design ideas and the practicalities and limitations of manufacturing. A graduate from the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1989, Nørgaard launched his own studio in 1994. From his offices in the harbour district of Aarhus, he has created award-winning chairs and sofa designs for internationally renowned brands. Nørgaard’s approach focuses on both function and form, achieving a clean, perfectly proportioned aesthetic that is rooted in Scandinavian design traditions and Danish Modernism.
