Armed with a maker’s wit and an education in fashion, intuitive geometries flow effortlessly through Henrik Pedersen and 365North’s functional, well-crafted furniture. Working out of their Aarhus studio in Denmark, 365North’s designs possess intelligence and playfulness, with a common sense that characterizes their focus on quality and craftsmanship. While the cloud-like Raft Modular Sofa hovers weightlessly, betraying its unexpected sturdiness, the inspired Canoe Daybed floats, as if set on a lake. Pedersen’s commitment to usability is ever more present in the Slice Shelving System; uncomplicated, easily modular, and meticulously detailed with a sense of whimsy.
Characterized by elegance, exquisite material choices and a timelessness well associated with Danish design, Pedersen’s neo-Scandinavian constructions for Wendelbo are well informed by his love for travel and living in the moment – transcribed into a universal language: functional, beautiful and always easy to understand.
