Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen

Designer

The designer duo Johannes Foersom (1947) and Peter Hiort-Lorenzen (1943) got its start in 1977 and since then, their thoughtful design has qualified them as some of the best contemporary Danish designers. Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen have created some of today's best chairs, which is due to their focus on the chair as a sensual reflection of the body. The duo has designed for Paustian the exclusive 'Stuk Chair', the popular 'Lounge Series' and as the newest member of the family the stackable armrest chair 'ASAP Chair' and the table 'ASAP Table' that fits well into both modern and classic environments. Paustian ASAP Chair is the winner of red dot design award 2012 and Paustian ASAP Table is the winner of red dot design award 2013. As an extension of their office, the duo has Studio 7 - their own exhibition space. It is a space for experimentation and innovation - while seeking direct contact with the consumer in hopes of being able to satisfy some real needs. The designer duo has over the years received numerous awards.
