Born in 1975, Thor Høy comes from a family of artists, art historians, architects, textile makers, ceramists, authors, and scientists. He created his first chair, out of a shopping cart, at age eleven, and his first series of lamps at seventeen. Thor has since then worked with many prestigious Danish brands as well as international brands within the interior industry. Combining his education in carpentry and his background within craftsmanship with creativity, his approach to design is rooted in a modernistic Nordic design tradition with a poetic twist and a dose of practicality.
“I believe that great design strikes at the heart of the balance between functionality, appearance, and sustainability. I believe that when creating great designs, balance is key.”
