Hans Sandgren Jakobsen
Hans Sandgren Jakobsen is a Danish designer and fabricator who was born in 1963. He completed his apprenticeship at Inventar Snedkeri in Denmark in 1986 before working as a cabinet maker in Copenhagen. Feeling the urge to know more he returned to education studying at the renowned Danish Design School where he studied from 1986 until 1990. A founding member of a number of design groups, an artist and educator Hans has a penchant for the Scandinavian design tradition, bringing a bright and ephemeral design ethic to everything he creates. His award winning furniture and easily recognisable objects are a measure of his dedicated, empathetic and long-term perspective, one that allows him to imagine and fashion products that satisfy real world needs.
