PETER JOHANSEN

Furniture designer Peter Johansen is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design. Shortly after his graduation he set up his own studio and was involved in forming the design group Remove In 2005. Remove was responsible for the interior design of the Danish Design Centre’s cafe DANSK (DANISH). Since then, his studio has created designs for a range of companies including Ligne Roset, Normann Copenhagen and HAY, and Peter Johansen has received several grants for his work. With a Norwegian father and a Swedish mother, Peter Johansen is a true Scandinavian in flesh and spirit with a modern design expression that always seeks the core potential of any given assignment and translates it into a contemporary context.

 

‘My work process often involves modelling and experimenting in a
scale of 1:1. I find my inspiration in everyday life and materials and
make a virtue of noticing my surroundings in a detailed kind of way

– I think my designs are logical, bordering on flirting with banality.’
