Danish-born Morten Georgsen established his studio in 1992. In 2002 he moved to Valencia, where the studio is located today. The philosophy of the studio is a no-nonsense approach.

Although it prioritizes people’s opinion over fame, the studio has been rewarded with several design distinctions, like the Pinnacle, Haimsohn, and German Design Award. The designs are constantly featured in international publications.
Carsten Buhl embraces the design philosophy of early modern and post-modern masters and reinvents them with today's new materials and technologies. His respects for the end user in his pieces are the motivations behind his innovative options in relation to form, function, minimalism, and elegance. Carsten Buhl's work is appealing and fresh, combining free-form sculptural shapes with the traditional attributes of Scandinavian design, material, and structural integrity. Each piece of furniture is a challenge – and has its own story. But common to it all is that it is created with respect to the simple, clear expression of Scandinavian design tradition.

Rikke Frost has worked from her own design studio since 2004.

The design language is recognizable and simple, with a focus on materials, colours, details, and surprising features that lends the experience of a unified design.
