Louise Campbell was born in Copenhagen of a Danish father and an English mother. She grew up and was educated in both countries. After graduating from the London College of Furniture in 1992, she returned to Denmark and continued her studies in Industrial Design at Denmarks Design School, graduating from there in 1995. She set up her own studio in 1996, from where she has worked independently since. Focus is on furniture and lighting design, but the studio is increasingly involved in product design and interior design projects as well. The client list is long and varied. Louise Campbell's work is playful and experimental, and is increasingly gaining a reputation for gently twisting not only every day objects and situations, but also materials and manufacturing processes in new directions.
The combination of Scandinavian rationalism and femininity, and perhaps her dual nationality, give the works of Louise Campbell an unusual edge. Illustrating contrasts seem to be an issue, that keeps returning in her work. There are a few ground rules the studio aims to abide by: Always start from scratch, everything is possible until the opposite has been proven, and there must be a good reason for every single decision made. Current commissions include design of chairs, tables, storage units, lamps, tableware, glassware, desktop accessories, jewelry and urban installations.
