Strand & Hvass - Carl Hansen
The design duo Strand + Hvass are part of a new breed of Danish designers whose work continues in a direct line from their celebrated predecessors. They focus on simplicity, functionality, superior quality, and the combination of uniqueness and industrial production to create the modern classics of tomorrow.
Founded in 1998 by industrial designer Christina Strand and architect Niels Hvass, the Strand + Hvass design firm is based in Copenhagen. The two initially joined forces to unlock the synergy between them and double the potential inherent in two minds working on the same solution. Their mutual design philosophy is user-centered, deeply rooted in Scandinavian culture, and based on research and an understanding of function. All this has resulted in simple and comprehensible furniture that showcases a deep understanding of the potential of various materials.
With the Straight furniture range, Strand + Hvass infuse the modern Danish furniture tradition of simplicity with a bold new expression. In the SH700 Straight Table, they convincingly use a combination of metal and oak to create an illusion of lightness. The precision of the craftsmanship can be seen in the details of the structure.Source: carlhansen.com
