In Kasper Salto's work the Danish tradition of furniture design is continued in a well-balanced combination with international industrial design. Salto's main source of inspiration is nature's superior way of designing and colouring. In spite of his young age, Kasper Salto has already received several design awards for his works such as the Danish Knud V. Engelhardt's memorial award, The Danish Arts Foundation in the category of Crafts & Design & the Finn Juhl Prize.
