Three great tastes that taste great together: A trio of Danish design forces, each with their own firms--Lars Holme Larsen of Kilo Design, Bjarke Ingels of BIG architects, and Jens Martin Skibsted of Skibsted Ideation--have all been collaborating together for years, so they finally decided to make it honest and combine into a single entity. On Tuesday they announced the formation of KiBiSi, an "idea-driven industrial design firm" based in Copenhagen.
Each partner contributes with intelligence and experience from within his specific field providing KiBiSi with cutting edge knowledge and knowhow within the fields of architecture, design, furniture, electronics, transportation, contemporary culture and lifestyle. Having collaborated on multiple projects for years Lars, Bjarke and Jens Martin decided to turn their intuitive inclination to work together into a full time collaboration.
Why is this exciting? Well, check out some of their collective work:
