Designed By

Vilhelm Lauritzen was one of Denmark’s most important architects and a father of Danish Modernism. Today, many of his projects remain as lasting examples of what was then a new and revolutionary approach to architecture in which form followed function. His beautiful Foyer Series for Carl Hansen are a shining testament to the Golden age of Scandinavian Design.
