An outdoor oven for Morsø. Trying a traditional pizza oven during a vacation in Italy started the project.
The design is based on the geometry and elements of a traditional stone oven, combining a circular stone platform, a low curved ceiling, a small chimney and a front opening into a simple orb-like shape. The oven is made from enameled cast iron and ceramic tiles. Both materials are outdoor-proof and have the mass needed in this type of oven.
Besides making the best pizza, the oven can be used as a grill or a fireplace.

Simply is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. With the magnetic cup on, it can go in the backpack. Remove the cup, and the thermos fits nicely on the table. The magnetic cup attachment makes it possible to avoid using screw-threads, making the thermos look like an indoor product, rather than a flask without a cup. The cup also becomes more comfortable to drink from, and easier to clean.
Simply thermos received the Design Plus award in 2010.
A collapsible ice scraper for Stelton.
Ice scrapers for cars are mostly down-scaled window wipers. They work fine from a functional point of view, but are not practical to stow away in a car when they are not used.
This ice scraper has a bistable hinge so it flips like a mobile phone, and can be folded together for compact storage. It has two edges; a hard one for removing ice, and a soft one for water. The ice scraper received the Design Plus award in 2010.

GN 9300 received the Japanese G-Mark Good Design Award in 2006, and the IF Design award in 2007.
Bread bags for Stelton. With the theme lent from a miller’s corn sack, the bread bag is a simple three-in-one solution:
1. With the sides folded down, the bag has a “normal” bread basket size.
2. Fold the sides up, and there is room for twice as much.
3. Close the bag with the hidden magnets, and the bread is kept warm without softening the crust.
The food-approved cotton fabric, keeps crumbs inside the bag, and off the table. The Bread Bags received the Design Plus award in 2007.
Jabra wanted to develop a high-end Bluetooth headset featuring state of the art technology and a display. The challenge was to incorporate technology, usability, appearance and acoustic performance in a compact package.
A distinct feature is the jog-type volume control that gives a nice analogue feel to the product. A new earhook with a spring retention feature, combined with an angled eargel, provides optimal stability and comfort.
A key ring for Georg Jensen. The design was based on two requirements: A key ring should be comfortable to have in a pocket, and changing keys should not involve the risk of breaking your nails.

GN Netcom wanted a cordless headset that was visually related to the GN 2100 headset family. Among the design issues were size, usability, appearance and acoustic performance.
The soft shaped silver boom and the chrome ring on the housing were added to make the headset appear smaller and give it a more mobile phone-like appeal. The user has a choice of using either an earhook or a headband.
The simple format of the base unit fits in everywhere, and is a nice visual contrast to the more complex headset shape.
GN 9120 received the Japanese G-Mark Good Design Award in 2003, and the German IF Design Award in 2004.
Mermaid Technology wanted a high-end flatpanel monitor in a simple minimal design that was more “furniture” than “computer”.
The monitor has a flush non-reflective glass front, and a metal housing giving Ventura an exclusive appearance. Hidden inside the raiser, are the speakers, cables and connectors, making the monitor uncluttered and nice to look at from all sides.
Since the launch in 2000, Ventura has been a large success for the company, and has formed the design DNA that the companys other products follow.
GN 2100 is a headset series for GN Netcom. The series is intended for the professional market, and features an extensive range of models with different booms and microphones targeted for various applications. Users are able to change between a number of different wearing styles and earplates.
Effort went into making a design that would work in the different applications, be comfortable to wear, and durable enough to stand many hours of daily use. Changing between the different wearing styles is made easy with large click-on details. The oval shapes give the headset the desired combination of a compact, lightweight and durable design.
GN 2100 received the IF design award in 2002.
Devireg 550 is a one-button programmable floor heating control unit for Devi made in collaboration with Klaus Schroeder.
Devi wanted to develop a high-end control unit with a wide range of features. Using fuzzy logic, the unit would be able to “learn” the room and adapt accordingly.
The many functional options combined with a predetermined product format, made it clear that the interface was a key factor in the design.
All functions are operated by a single button with a turn and push function. The analogue style button together with the round watch style display, gives this high-tech product a broader soft-tech appeal.
Deviheat 550 received the IF Interface Design award in 2001.
Ocean is a paper based signage system for Modulex. Modulex wanted to develop a DIY sign system, where the user prints the sign text and graphics on a piece of paper and inserts it into a holder. The design features a patented hinge/lock mechanism that came from combining a demand for a hidden lock, with the observation that changing paper was a lot easier if the front cover was hinged to the back part of the sign, instead of being a separate loose part. Sizes range from small badges up to A3 paper formats, and the signs can either be wall mounted, or on to a series of floor and table stands.
An interior signage system for Modulex A/S.
Modulex wanted to develop an interior version of the Pacific Exterior sign system. The design has the same curved and frameless surfaces as Pacific Exterior, leaving all attention to the graphics on the sign. The panels are mounted with a click-on mechanism, making changing and updating easy.
Pacific Interior was designed together with Viggo Mortensen and Nils Damsgaard MDD.
Modulex wanted to develop an exterior sign system, with a full assortment ranging from small parking signs up to large monoliths.
The approach was minimalist. By reducing the sign to two slightly curved surfaces, and with the structure hidden inside the sign, the attention is left to the graphics. The curved profile makes the sign appear thinner than it is. All panels can be individually changed, making it easy to maintain and update the signs.
The result is a simple timeless design that fits in most environments.
