Hans Sandgren Jakobsen's award-winning Gallery was originally designed in 1998 for the Copenhagen Art Association and was meant to be a stool guests could sit on while they enjoyed the paintings on show. Gallery, which today is sold around the world, is beautiful in its sculptural simplicity. Hidden behind the minimalist design, however, lies an innovative technique that has made it possible to shape veneer in several dimensions.

About the designer: Hans Sandgren Jakobsen
For Hans Sandgren Jakobsen, the sentence “less is more” has neither lost its truth nor its importance. A piece of furniture must be honed down to its most minimalist expression so the design clearly shines through. This does not in any way imply that functionality suffers as a result when Sandgren Jakobsen tests out new ideas from his workshop in the old ferry terminal at Grenå harbour. “I could never make a beautiful chair which was uncomfortable. Conversely, I often experience how great functionality brings out the beauty in the design,” he says.
