"Behind every product lies a story.
Sometimes it´s obvious and can be read in the visual appearance of
the product, and sometimes it is subtle and to be found in the
detail. But the story is always there" Flemming Busk and Stephan
Hertzog established their successful studio in Denmark in 2000.
Today, their recognition goes far beyond Scandinavian borders.
Their studio has won more than 20 of the most prestigious
international design awards, including red Dot Awards and Good
Design Awards, making them the most award-winning Danish designers
of their generation. Several of their designs are part of permanent
exhibitions at design museums around the world. busk + hertzog´s
design characteristics are scuptural, clean lines and a simple
expression with minimal embellishment. Any decoration usually
serves a function or is integral to the furniture. They often get
their inspiration from shapes and lines found in nature.
When Flemming Busk and Stephan Hertzog
established their design studio, it was a very clear vision of
being not only innovative and professional but also with the aim of
launching a new generation of Danish Designers. Their successful
revitalizing of a Danish Design industry that was mainly based on
designs from the 1950´s was recognized in 2008 by the Danish
furniture industry who awarded them with their oldest and finest
distinction - The Industry´s Furniture Award. This was previously
given to , among others, Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Verner
Panton and Jørn Utzon.
Their products have been used in some
of the world´s most prestigious building projects - perhaps not
surprising given that Stephan B. Hertzog and Flemming Busk always
have had an emphasis on their designs being global. The design duo
is now based in London.
