A collection of chairs consists of 4 pieces: King, Queen, Jack and Ace.
All four chairs consist of a light rectangular steel construction, each one with its own quality and strength, but all four designed from a same architectural line and starting point. From there on, geometries, angles and heights vary for each of the chairs. These differences make them each uniquely beautiful and suitable in the home. We call them four in a row.
King stands big and proud with an over-dimensioned seat-back in foam. It can best be described as the dining room chair melting together with the wingback armchair. This is a sculptural design that stands on its own.
Queen stands with its high back and fine silhouette. The steel construction is broken up by the soft leather piece on the seat and back with adjustable straps. The design is eye-catching and dynamic. This is the sophisticated choice.
Jack has a clear reference to architecture with its beautifully simple shape. The chair's back and seat is made of wood and gives the chair a classic expression - a reminiscence of a typical school chair of the 80's and 90's. Lean and modern.
Ace is a stool, which can also be used brilliantly as a side table. The design is playful and functional. The seat is in wood and the front legs are pushed together, allowing multiple sitting postures. This is the versatile, neutral and timeless choice.
Pi is a playful reference to a childhood toy: the spinning top.
In a spin of fibres, this lamp is constructed of 12 circular layers of brass, with a grid of brass sticks in between each lay. LED is recessed in each lay.
By pulling the top of the lamp, the fibres will stretch, the lamp opens, and the light source will spread, - from a more focused light source to a dispersed lightning. Through its unique construction, light source will change, and will not only focus forward through the grid, but also upwards, and emanate throughout the room. By re-pulling the top of the lamp, the fibres will contract, the lamp closes, and light will be diffused upwards from each of the layers.
Pi is inspired by the layered structured in fibre muscle cells and the high tensile strength in fibres. The designer wanted to resemble the sequence of events involved in muscle spindle when producing a stretch reflex. Brass is chosen because of its ductility and because it has a living quality about it - meaning that it changes with age and use, so the material becomes warmer as it gets older.

Hjemmet gennemgår i øjeblikket et skift fra at have haft en især erindringsbærende karakter, og være det sted, hvor vi gemmer på vores erindringer og historie, til i dag at have en langt mere nomadisk karakter.
Dette skift i hjemmet "fra rum til netværk" interesserer os og inspirerer os i vores designs. Hvilket VINKEL er et af resultaterne af.
Vinkel leger med perspektivet, og skaber en illusion af forandring. Afhængigt af hvordan man sætter kasserne sammen, kan VINKEL samles i forskellige sammensætninger, - stables, vægmonteret eller ved siden af hinanden, hvilket giver forskellige dybder, fortællinger og perspektiver i rummet

Kevin Hviid (born 1978), Danish born architect, graduated from the Royal Danish academy of fine arts, School of architecture, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Lives and work between Copenhagen and Paris, with interdisciplinary projects through art, design and architecture. The driving force of his work is an experimenting passion for architectural design, and a playful approach towards form and a fondness for the unexpected. Through interdisciplinary projects, he uses creativity as a tool for innovation and change, questioning deep-rooted traditions, creating space for new ways of thinking and acting.
BOB Bench is inspired by the Memphis movement, where form does not have to follow function, and where design is about communication. It is a very graphical piece of furniture, which strives to communicate and attract attention to its presence.
It is constructed with rectangular and circular steel pipes painted in black and white and bold primary colors, the bench’s back rest and overhanging seat form a perfect circle. The armrests are in brass.
The bench was selected to be presented at REFORM 2016 Design Biennale (www.re-form.dk/), a biannual exhibition space, which strives to assemble the strongest field within modern Danish design
Round bench with seating for two persons on both sides.
The form inspiration for the bench came from the cactus. This sturdy plant can survive in the wilderness, a harsh and lonely environment with no audience or competitors. It stands up to the taxing conditions, continuously producing new disc-shaped segments in its process of constant transformation. The plant’s famously prickly demeanour is its main appeal for its many fans!
Billy is designed to be similarly prickly, virtually jabbing at passers-by, examining them from every angle, holding their gaze and pulling them in. The flowers bursting from the monochrome cactus stem add to the plant’s intense and sculptural expression – an effect that Hviid echoed in the strange shapes protruding from the bench.
Billy is an unique piece designed for MINDCRAFT18, on display from 17 through 22 April in Milan during the design week, where the historical San Simpliciano cloister forms the setting for the exhibition. MINDCRAFT is an exhibition concept showcasing some of Denmark's most talented craftspeople and designers.
Dimensions: Materials: Rectangular steel tube, wooden slats Price upon request. (ideal for museum).
Our mission has been to create a new icon. A timeless lounge chair for private and public spaces. Cocoon Lounge fit just as well in homes as in the hotel lobby or restaurant lounge.
Cocoon lounge is a lounge chair that blurs the boundary between furniture and architecture. It is inspired by the organic modernism of the 60’s, where soft and sculptural shapes melt together. The design is the result of a fusion between the beauty in rattan fabric and a curvy, unified wood silhouette, creating together a harmonious and inviting feel. Recalling the classic egg-shaped hanging chair, Cocoon Lounge is the perfect nook to cozy up in.
Depending on the color combinations, the chair has a versatile expression, which can range from a serious, muted boho-chic, to a vibrant playful look.
Cocoon Lounge is designed by Danish designduo KEVIN HVIID (Architect b.1978) x MARTIN KECHAYAS (Designer b.1969).
Dimensions are 720mm (d) x 640mm (w) x 1300mm (h).
KEVIN HVIID X GANNI
Irïs swinging couch is a design collab between architect Kevin Hviid and GANNI fashion house.
It has been designed for the 2017 Cabinetmakers’ Exhibition.
The swinging couch is a bright colorful 3-meter-tall construction, developed around an iron structure and multi-colored nylon bands (600+ pieces of nylon bands, manually attached!) with a focus on strings and lines. Representing complexity the furniture is both a strong statement while maintaining functional at the same time. Irïs is a piece of furniture with curves, character and sharp elbows.. She is colorful, both inside and out, stands out from the background and attracts attention. “Her skirts” swing and sway as she brings one, two or more people back and forth in her arms but Irïs also offers room and time for reflection and lingering in the moment by providing a sheltered, intimate space in her arms.
GANNI and Kevin Hviid have previously strong ties and Kevin Hviid’s prior uniqa decorate selected GANNI stores, however this design collaboration is the biggest to date. The furniture is a sort of Scandi 2.0 with a dash of colour.
IrÏs is a tribute to the Scandinavian girl: She’s not a perfectly polished persona, but a concoction of independence and freedom.

Projektet har bestået i en ombygning af en gammel vaskehal (knyttet til den gamle FUN læskedrik-fabrik) til kontormiljø, hovedsæde og showroom for Johan Bülow.
Ombygningen er løst med særlig fokus på at skabe tæt visuel kontakt til lakridsgryderne, samt at skabe levende rum hvor man mødes omkring lakridsen, og kan præsentere nye produkter og opskrifter, blandt andet ved de mange events, som de afholder. Samtidig ville vi bevare den gamle vaskehals udtryk, som Johan havde forelsket sig i. Vi har eksperimenteret meget med materialet strækmetal, som vi har beklædt vægge og vinduer med.

The Flip bookshelf is both a square, a hexagon and a trapezoid form imposed on each other. A simple manipulation of the edges creates a bookshelf that can be perceived differently depending on your viewpoint, or the way you flip it. At its base, it is still a square and functional box, great for storing books, or creating a playful frame around your everyday objects.
