poul-henningseOur reproductions are inspired by Poul Henningsen
 
Poul Henningsen (September 9, 1894 – January 31, 1967), Danish author, architect and critic, was one of the leading figures of the cultural life of Denmark between the World Wars. In Denmark, he is often referred to as PH. Poul Henningsen was the illegitimate son of author Agnes Henningsen and satirist Carl Ewald. He spent a happy childhood in a tolerant and modern home which was often visited by the leading literates. Between 1911 and 1917 he was educated as an architect, but he never graduated and tried himself as an inventor and painter. As an architect Henningsen was one of the most eager supporters of functionalism of which he propagated. His most valuable intervention was the so-called PH-lamp (constructed 1925), a simple lamp which used the breakings of light. It created the economic fundament of his later work.

Joseph Hoffman PDF Print E-mail

(1870-1956) Hoffmann studied architecture at the University of Vienna with the famous architect Otto Wagner. After completing his studies he spent some time in Italy. The Italian country house, cubic, whitewashed, with windows carved irregularly out of the walls inspired his first architectural works. Like many of his contemporaries, Hoffman wanted to create a complete work of art: "I believe that a house has to be made from one piece and that its exterior should reveal its interior. His highest commitment was to the "permanent quest for better materials and the effort for an ever more perfect representation". His style was characterized by simplicity, integrity and precision. His designs were characterized by clear forms and geometric ornaments.

Eero Saarinen PDF Print E-mail
Our reproductions are inspired by Eero Saarinen
 
Eero Saarinen was born in Kirkkonummi, Finland in 1910. He studied in Paris and at Yale University, after which he joined his father's practice. Eero initially pursued sculpture as his art of choice - and his later architectural and furniture designs reflect this beautifully. The design of the tulip chair and table is undeniably sculptural - its elegantly organic lines are as much art as function. After a year in art school, he decided to become an architect instead. Saarinen evolved a remarkable palet of materials and forms, innovative use of materials and uniquely sculptural shapes - but always with a pragmatic focus upon function. His style has been described as International and Expressionist - and indeed it is both: Utilizing a vocabulary of forms that was undoubtedly influenced by the work of designers in many countries and cultures, he produced work that pushes the boundaries of our expectations and preconceptions.

Harry Bertoia

Our reproductions are inspired by Harry Bertoia
Italian sculptor, university lecturer and furniture designer Harry Bertoia emigrated to America in 1930. He studied at the Cass Technical High School in Detroit and trained on a scholarship at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan. From 1939 to 1943, he set up a metal workshop and began to teach jewelry and metal working. In 1943, he worked with Charles and Ray Eames for the Evans Product Company where they experimented on molded-plywood seating. In 1950, he established a studio in Pennsylvania and introduced his famous 'Diamond' chair for the Knoll International in 1952. Bertoia was an inventor of form and an enricher of furniture design with his introduction of a new material, he turned industrial wire rods into a design icon.The success was immediate and in the mid-50's the royalties he received for these chairs allowed him to devote himself exclusively to his sculpting career.

Eero Aarnio

Our reproductions are inspired by Eero Aarnio
 
Aarnio was - and still is - one of the pioneers in using plastic in industrial design. Plastic material set the designers free to create every shape and use every color they wanted. This gave birth to objects oscillating between function and fun - but always fascinating ones. The finnish designer Eero Aarnio, born in 1932, studied from 1954 to 1957 at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki and started in 1962 with his own office as an interior and industrial designer. Engaged in new ideas of furniture he designed the Ball Chair (or globe chair) already in 1963. It was produced some years later. Material (fibreglass) and shape were complete novelties for that time's furniture industry. The fibreglass ball is build on a metal swiveling base, and upholstered with foam/fibrefill. The original colors were white, red, black and orange.
