SØREN ULRIK PETERSEN
(1961)

His training as cabinet maker and his education the Danish School of Design have been decisive for this reccurrently prize-winning designer. His work is thus characterised by the confident hand of the craftsman, an eye for detail, and thorough knowledge of furniture construction principles. And, simultaneously, his design education steps into character. One senses a generous creative excess in his models. With its focus on functionality and simplicity, this excess points to his anchorage in the Danish design tradition . But also there is the more personal aspect which first and foremost signals a sense of humour and a certain degree of laid back attitude.

SØREN ULRIK PETERSEN with PP

Søren Ulrik Petersen started working with PP Møbler in 1998. Just one year later, the result was the arm chair Suppose, which was launched at SE's exhibition the same year. Since then, Søren Ulrik Petersen has been a regular visitor at the workshop in Allerød at least once a week.

Despite Søren Ulrik Petersens education as cabinet maker back in 1985, it was not until his collaboration with PP Møbler that he ventured working with wood in his designs. The dialogue has since then been characterised by mutual respect where each party benefits from the others professionalism.

His humility and respect for the craft means that Søren Ulrik Petersen always uses the cabinet maker's knowledge when developing his designs. He never prsents completely finished models, but rather an idea or concept, which is then finished in cooperation with the craftsmen at the workshop. Consequently, the process is dynamic, progressive, and mutually inspiring
