In the creation of a new design I seek to unite innovation and aesthetics with good function. I am influenced by the core of Danish design based on a democratic mindset, with focus on the human being and our daily actions, challenges and needs. To me, good design embraces innovative solutions that unite technical know-how with empathy and understanding of user needs. Often good design derives from a strong wish to improve a situation, a product or a process to the benefit of human beings. I value good, smart and beautiful design solutions that optimize a well-functioning everyday-life. And as a designer I seek to create products based on these values.
Design as a concept has been expanded and design thinking includes wider areas than just aesthetics. Good design can improve the lives of many people and focus on environmentally better solutions. As a partner in Halskov & Dalsgaard Design I focus on product design and design development. Together with my colleague Hanne Dalsgaard I founded our design company in 1990, and our studio is situated in the center of Copenhagen. We develop new products and ideas for our customers both inside and outside of Denmark. Please check our website and Facebook site, if you are curious for more info.
