Ditlev Karsten


A little about designer Ditlev Karsten

In 1976-1977, Ditlev Karsten had a slatted sofa in production by Erik Jørgensen. It was supposed to compete with Børge Mogensen's Tremmesofa, but due to high production costs it was taken off the program again. However, 400 copies were made. After a job as an urban planner in Odense, Ditlev Karsten took a job as a designer at Dyrlund-Smith.

Throughout the 1980s and 90s, architect Ditlev Karsten was primarily known as the designer of a large number of teak wood furniture for the Scandinavian stores in Germany. The best known is probably the GV Reolen. In addition to collaborating with Nielaus, Ditlev Karsten has also designed furniture for Trekanten-Hestbæk, Vantinge and Andersen Furniture.
