The Danish furniture designer Jørgen Kastholm created furniture where Form, Function and Finish comes together beautifully. He produced a collection of furniture that is today an intrinsic part of Danish design DNA. Kastholm first trained as a blacksmith, and later went to study architecture at the School of Interior Design in Copenhagen under Finn Juhl. Here he met cabinetmaker Preben Fabricius. He graduated as an Architect in 1958. In 1961 Fabricius & Kastholm opened a design studio together in Denmark. They exhibited at the Furniture Fair in Fredericia where the German furniture manufacturer Alfred Kill noticed their work and offered them a contract with Kill International. In 1968 the pair went separate ways. Kastholm was appointed professor at Bergische University in Wuppertal where he taught design from 1975 to 1996.
