Having a Danish father and an English mother, designer Louise Campbell grew up and was educated in Denmark as well as the UK. It is perhaps this dual nationality that gives her work an unusual edge. Illustrating contrasts seem to be an issue that keeps returning in her designs. Her well-known Prince Chair, produced by HAY, combines a very personal expression with extremely high tech manufacturing methods.
Louise now works from her studio in Copenhagen, Denmark. Focus is on furniture and lighting design, but the studio is increasingly involved in product design and interior design projects as well. Louise is increasingly gaining a reputation for gently twisting not only every day objects and situations, but also materials and manufacturing processes in new directions. I love the Very Round Chair, made from laser cut steel, that she recently designed for Italian company Zanotta. Click here to go to Louise’s website where you can see all her designs.
