In 2010, we won the competition to refurbish the TCC, which was next in line for a comprehensive renovation in the UN building. The layout of the hall had been changed since Finn Juhl’s project from 1952
In Denmark, the project was administered by the Danish Ministry of Culture in close collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Danish Arts Foundation was responsible for the competition itself.
We made the project come through in close collaboration with the Danish manufacturer ONECOLLECTION.
Providing extra seating in a living room, throws up a well-known problem; the storage of these extra seats when they're not in use.
We typically put them away in a loft, cellar or garage. Conveniently out of the way when we don't need them, but inconveniently far away when we do!
When we go to collect these seats, we find that they're not fit to sit in. They are either too cold or worse; they might be damaged by the damp climate in the storage space.
To solve this problem, we examined our homes and workplaces to find a suitable and convenient place to store extra seating. We found that the bookshelf is the obvious place, as it is close to the social situation, and is in a good 'climate'. We end up with an extra seat that is; close at hand, but not in the way!

In the beautiful modernnistic house from 1938, designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen, we have refurbished a foyer in the center of the building. The building used to be the Danish National Radio (The Radiohouse), but is today serving the Royal Danish Music Conservatorium. The 'Auditorie Foyer' is used as a 'meetingpoint' for the students during the day, and in the nighttime it transforms into a foyer for the guests in the concerthalls.

What do you need to get light in a lightbulb ?

YellowFin was made for the 10 Mindcraft exhibition at Spazio Vuoto in Zona Tortona, Milan in 2010. An exhibition featuring 12 brand-new works from a selection of Denmark’s finest designers and craftspeople.
Its an ultra slim wall lamp, only 6 mm. including LED, diffuser, and cooling. It was meant to be mounted flush with the wall, and parked by magnets. When bringing the lamp out, the light turns on. YellowFin reaches out appr. 1 meter, and the 'head' can turn 360 o horizontally.
A diving bell, also known as a 'Wet bell', is a cable-suspended airtight chamber, open at the bottom like a moon pool structure that is lowered underwater. The pressure of the water keeps the air trapped inside the bell. Unlike a submarine the diving bell is not designed to move.
The new lamp from Salto & Sigsgaard, is an attempt to make a pendel-lamp which uses is light source to the full. It reflects the light one time in the aluminum reflector, and at the same time it adjusts the color of the LED lights color temperature.
When admitting that the LED light is orientated, unlike a traditional light bulb, the LED filament is pointed up towards the reflector, with the power cordentering the lamp at the open end.
