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.
NØRGAARD & KECHAYAS
The no-nonsense design duo argues that great original design has nothing to do with price, but everything to do with the ability of its creator. That spirit of craft, combined with Nørgaard’s reflective mind and Kechayas’ “just do it” attitude, has made them a well-known name on the Danish design scene. Doing everything from elephant chairs to chameleon lamps in terracotta and kryptonite.
