Louise Campbell’s playful, experimental approach has brought her international recognition and the award of Danish Designer of the Year in 2005. Campbell was born in Copenhagen, raised by her English mother and Danish father and educated in both countries. This dual nationality is perhaps the source of her ability to twist everyday items and take materials in new directions.
After graduating from Denmark Design School in 1995, Campbell established her own design studio. Working out of an old workshop in Copenhagen, Campbell always starts from scratch when beginning a project. “Everything is possible until the opposite has been proven,” she says, and her studio follows one simple rule: Dare to be different.
Campbell has exhibited at venues around the globe, and her work is included in several permanent art collections, including MoMA in New York (Prince Chair, 2002) and Centre Pompidou in Paris (Veryround Chair, 2006).
