THOMAS BENTZEN ON HIS COFFEE TABLE DESIGN
Around has a modern and unique identity, but the materials and craftsmanship express traditional Scandinavian design values. The shape and frame make the Around tables functional and elegant, and simultaneously give the table a warm and welcoming appearance. Both coffee tables work well on their own or in groups of two, three or more.

ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use - and simply create joy while not. For me durability means quality, form and functionality. And putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.
ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
To me Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality comprised with poetry. I like it that way. And I think Scandinavian designers have succeeded into bringing their heritage into a time, where we no longer stand next to the cabinetmaker, but are challenged and thrilled by new materials and new ways to produce.
