|For Sandgren Jakobsen, the design should be shaved down to a minimum during this process. The minimalist look makes the design clear and, according to the designer, gives it international appeal. It is, however, a condition for Sandgren Jakobsen, that the clear design goes hand in hand with function and innovation. Sandgren would, as he puts it, "never make a beautiful chair that is uncomfortable to sit in."
Creating a piece of furniture is often a lengthy process, and so too it is for Hans Sandgren Jakobsen. It often takes 2-4 years from the time he first comes up with the idea until the product is ready for sale. It is important to have time, as it allows space for design, reflection, testing, further development and optimal use of the materials.|
