Thomas Bentzen's work ranges from tableware to interior design, from furniture to industrial design. His passion is to create objects that engage and create curiosity, which are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use - and simply create joy. He claims to be obsessed with materials and their limits, by form and functionality and by the durability of design. Before setting up his own design office in spring 2010 he worked five years for Danish designer Louise Campbell where he became a partner in 2008. He is co-founder of the Copenhagen-based design collective REMOVE and have exhibited his work at various international exhibitions and furniture fairs. Thomas Bentzen is a board-member at the Danish Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition also known as SE and occasionally teaches at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen.
