UNDERSTAND THE PAST – FORM THE FUTURE
This ingenious play on words is characteristic of furniture designer Carsten Buhl’s way of working with design development. Every piece of furniture is a challenge and has its own story. But what they all have in common is that they are created with respect for the simple, pure expression of the Scandinavian design tradition. The goal is always to create furniture that solves practical and functional needs and that at the same time meets certain design quality requirements.
