Designs for HOUE: CLICK outdoor chairs, ReCLIPS outdoor chairs, LEVEL Lounge, CIRCLE dining tables, LEAF dining table, FOUR dining and bar tables, SKETCH dining table, EYELET tray tables and AVON Lounge collection.
In my designs I try to use as an inspiration a recognized shape, feature or a small gesture which most people are familiar with, simplify it to its core, process it and implement it in a new context.
The functional details enhance the concept in an interesting and expressive manner, and adds a unique character to the object, one that the consumer can recognize and relate to.

DESIGNER // THOMAS PEDERSEN
Thomas Pedersen graduated from Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark in 2002 and set up SPARK design studio later the same year.
Pedersen’s designs embody Danish Modern characteristics, with a clear emphasis on simplicity. He combines classic organic lines with innovative ideas and details.
Much of his fascination for furniture design derives from the fact that it is possible to build full-scale models of the concepts he has in his head. He is firmly convinced that it is only by doing this that it is possible to test the qualities of his products with his own body, to assess their durability and thus make certain that the results live up to expectations.
Among Pedersen’s role models in this context are Charles and Ray Eames, whose furniture design work was always dedicated to ergonomically and comfortably accommodating the human body. Over the years Thomas Pedersen has won a number of awards for his designs. He is best known for his Stingray chair, which he designed as his graduation project in Aarhus.
