Jesper Holm

June 26, 2013

Furniture designer Jesper Holm designs and builds elegant, functional furniture with personality to last for generations, utilizing traditional carpentry methods and treating wood with linseed oil. Possessed of the same background that many Danish design greats share, Holm both continues and renews the Scandinavian design ideology.

His perfectly balanced Biotop Sofa (1992; Koln Sofas) has an aesthetic purity about it with its lightweight stainless steel geometric base apposed with leather upholstery in parts. It is a striking choice, appearing both classic and stylish at the same time and truly realising Holm’s ideal as he asserted- “I seek the simple, the functional, the clear and the calm.”

April 25, 2014

Fiberglass is plastic that is reinforced by fine glass fibers or strands embedded in a resin matrix.

 

Fiberglass is a fascinatingly beautiful, durable and sustainable material that has been touted as the lumber of the future. Its vibrant aesthetics, versatility and beguiling tactility have bestowed upon the material a sort of casual but hardy connoisseurship that endures.

Fiberglass is lightweight, extremely robust, low-maintenance, UV-resistant, nonporous and chemically inert, which means that it will not react with other substances that it comes in contact with.
