Rud Thygesen & Johnny Sørensen

丹麦

Rud Thygesen & Johnny Sørensen 是丹麦家具领域中的知名设计组合,两位建筑师植根于丹麦的细木工艺传统,在历史和创新的风格中交替变化,不断探索新的设计语言,为丹麦现代家具带来了一抹别样的色彩。

Thygesen(1932-2019)和 Sørensen(1944- )均于1966年从丹麦皇家美术学院毕业,并于同年创立了设计工作室。1968年,他们参加了哥本哈根细木工行业协会宣布举办的一场比赛,以一套轻盈优雅的家具系列拔得头筹。次年,该系列被作为礼物,赠送给70岁的弗雷德里克九世,自此,该系列被称为“国王系列”,而其中最经典的即为“国王沙发”。Thygesen & Sørensen 因此一鸣惊人。

当 Thygesen & Sørensen 还在学校的时候,他们就与丹麦制造商 Magnus Olesen 建立了合作,在美学和技术上达到了很好的平衡。1970年代,Thygesen & Sørensen 开始使用层压胶合板设计椅子、沙发、柜体等家具,它们兼具美感和实用性,备受好评。

1995年,在合作了近30年之后,Thygesen & Sørensen结束了组合关系,转而追求个人事业。但两人在50和60年代,对丹麦设计黄金时代起到的推动作用,影响极为深远。他们的作品被纽约现代艺术博物馆、伦敦维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆、丹麦艺术与设计博物馆等知名博物馆收藏。

Rud Thygesen (1932) and Johnny Sørensen (1944) both graduated from the Danish School of Arts, Crafts and Design in 1966 and the same year they opened their own design studio.

While still at school they established a co-operation with Magnus Olesen, which in 1971was expressed in the first models of a collection of laminated furniture, whose mutual connection, both technologic and aesthetic, is a stringent and functional design.

Since then Thygesen and Sørensen have created a number of furniture - mainly in laminated wood. They have contributed considerably to the development of furniture in laminated and moulded wood and designed some of the most successful Danish furniture. They have also designed tubular steel furniture and worked with the design of textiles, lightings etc.

Their work is purchased by among others The Danish Arts Foundation, Danish Museum of Art and Design, The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, National Museum of Decorative Arts in Norway, Staatliches Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Cologne, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Art Gallery and Museum, The Royal Pavillon in Brighton and Modern Art in New York.
