You might know Kasper Thorup from “Danmarks næste klassiker”, which graced Danish television screens in the spring of 2019. Since completing his degree in design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2017, he has been running his own furniture company by the name of Thorup Copenhagen.
Looking at the – for now – small selection from Thorup Copenhagen, it is clear to see that the designs are rooted in minimalism, and all the unnecessary details have been removed. All the same, the quality is impeccable, and the lamps are functionality incarnate while their materials, shapes, and lines have been thought through down to the last detail.
His designs are characterised by an informal and instinctual approach to the design process, intended to create results that will benefit the user for years to come. Thorup finds inspiration in industrial buildings and areas, as well as nature. The style is simple, elegant, and timeless, while the designer strives to offer a modern interpretation of Scandinavian design.
