Henrik Pedersen graduated as a fashion designer in 1990 but uses his education to explore the full range of design. His interest for maths together with his wide-ranging experience give him an intuitive ability to quickly gauge if a new design will work or not. ‘Experience and knowledge help, but the difference lies in how you use it. Good common sense and a passion for your craft will take you far.’
One of Henrik’s first pieces of furniture was the iconic Imola chair for BoConcept, and he is one of the leading Danish designers of lamps. ‘I get inspired by seeing things up close. Maybe the handle on an old kitchen appliance or interesting colour combinations as food mix on the plate. Little details that can evolve into a complete product.’ Like the Imola chair that is inspired by a close-up of the lines on a tennis ball.
