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.
The studio is also known for its interest in less commercial activities. Apart from being the curator and designer of exhibitions, Louise Campbell has taken part in numerous activities aiming at improving the design environment in Denmark. Among these initiatives is ‘Walk the Plank’, a collaboration lasting seven years between 30 furniture designers and 60 cabinet makers, all of whom donated their time and original design for a truly fine cause. 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. There must be a good reason for every single decision made.
Among different awards achieved by Louise Campbell, she won the IF Product Design Award in gold for “Campbell Pendant” in 2005, which she designed specifically for Louis Poulsen.
