Søren Nissen og Ebbe Gehl

 

A little about designers Søren Nissen and Ebbe Gehl

Søren Nissen and Ebbe Gehl are both trained cabinetmakers and designers of exclusive and up-to-date furniture. Both are trained cabinetmakers from Rud (Rasmussens Snedkerier in Copenhagen) and then as designers from the School of Applied Arts, followed by a few years at various design studios and design schools in Denmark and abroad. Since 1970, they have worked together in the company Nissen & Gehl. Over the years, they have received numerous awards for their unique, functional design, which has also earned them international recognition. Ebbe Gehl: The design process is only ready when construction, form and function merge into a higher unity. The fact that you immediately understand the design and construction is fundamental.

My designs must have soul and a personal expression right down to the detail, where construction and the function of the furniture merge into a harmonious whole and form its own new form. I like itwhen the detail in the construction also becomes the supporting decorative element. Each furniture design must have its very own soul. Søren Nissen's prerequisites for creating beautiful furniture design are based on his own great craftsmanship. He creates products that are based on the best craftsmanship tradition in both wood and metal. The combination of beautifully executed woodwork and elegant and stylish steel structures is therefore characteristic of his design. Søren Nissen's furniture carries elements from the 'golden age' in Danish tradition, but the mix with today's tight and elegant minimalism points to future furniture design.
