Carpenter, Sociologist and Designer
Henrik Sørig Thomsen is a Danish designer who lives and works in Aarhus. In 1995, he finished his Bachelor's degree in industrial design, already having a Bachelor's degree in sociology and being trained as a carpenter. In his design studio in Aarhus, he mainly designs industrial design products. However, his passion is furniture design.
For Thomsen, the moment of the beginning is the most exciting one, when the white sheet paper, the untouched clay or the panel lies in front of him. Together with design manufacturers he tries to create timeless products that stimulate the senses and are not just good looking or functional. According to Thomsen, a design is successful if it still excites you even a long time after buying it.
