THOMAS BENTZEN'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use - and simply create joy while not. For me durability means quality, form and functionality. And putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.”
THOMAS BENTZEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“To me Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality composed with poetry. I like it that way. And 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.”
