SHADE BIN / Designer
Thomas Bentzen is a Danish designer who founded his own studio in Copenhagen in 2010. Previously, he was a partner at Studio Louise Campbell, where he worked for five years. He is a board member of the Danish Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition (SE) and an occasional teacher at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design. Bentzen is a methodical designer, who seeks to create fine-tuned products that are both engaging and durable. He works in the classic tradition of Scandinavian design – with a pragmatic, unassuming and universal outlook. Against this backdrop, he has shown a talent for creating designs that are imbued with a contemporary feel that spark a sense of joy too. For HAY, Bentzen has designed the DLM Table and Shade Bin.
