Hans Toft Hornemann is a designer from Denmark, who appreciates the combination of aesthetic simplicity and functionality. With those values he completely represents the tradition of Scandinavian design teaching.
Hornemann graduated at the University of Aalborg in 2014. The Danish is fascinated by the possibilities of modern industrial production regarding forms and materials. But he also loves classic materials like wood. The combination of such contrastive materials is often viewed in Hornemanns works.
Despite of their simplicity, Hans Hornemann’s designs often have an expressive component. He explains about it: ”I try to treat material honestly and to show its natural advantages and characteristics. In my opinion, a new product should also create something new, whether the expression or the function.”
