On His Design Philosophy Thomas Bentzen 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."
