New Works is a Danish furniture and lightning brand, for whom the exploration of handicraft and different materials is important. Essential for New Works is the rethinking of forms, materials and solutions. Their work does not need to be understood, but used.
In the design process itself it is important to draw a line between inspiration and imitation: it is more important to create products that look and feel good than products that happen to be big at the moment.
Norwegian design Lars Tornøe works across the areas of furniture and product design with a sculpted simplicity. His work is understated but bold. Having graduated from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design in 2006, Lars has been named Norwegian Designer of the Year and had his work exhibited from Stockholm to Soul.
