Hans Thyge & Co
This experience developed his profound interest in storytelling, be it when creating design exhibitions or integrating cultural references into his designs. In 1983, Raunkjær travelled to Milan and spent the next seven years working with the acclaimed designers behind Memphis Group, the Italian design and architecture group founded by Ettore Sottsass. Upon his return to Denmark in 1990, he founded his own design studio, Hans Thyge & Co. Hans Thyge & Co specializes in designing furniture, objects and interiors and has a long history of know-how and experience working with a variety of materials and production methods.
The design studio consists of several passionate designers with bold ideas who find common ground in their love for beautiful design.
“We believe in combining brain and heart, function and aesthetics, and that every design should tell a story; a product is so much more than the product itself, it is about creativity, vision, culture, company values, the past, the present and the future.”
