KN—S is a Copenhagen based design studio founded in 2012 by designer and creative director Kristian Lindhardt Nørhave. The studio works in the classic Scandinavia minimalism, with a playful approach that brings the Scandinavian style into our time; a style we like to call “Maximal Minimalism”.
The Scandinavian style and quality is widely known, it is easily recognized for its pure lines, simple colouring and elegant expression and I am very pleased to be a part of the next generation to bring the Scandinavian inherited into a new area.
Starting out designing for other brands, such as Danish Frama Cph., in 2013 they produced their first line of products, KL10s, a series of beautiful holders for displaying magazines, books, candles, records or whatever one wish do put on display. In 2015 they launched a beautiful series of candleholders, KL71s, on the Danish design fair Northmodern; which were selected as “New Best Item” by the fair.
Earlier same year, Kristian was selected as one of the 15 Best Scandinavian Designers by Russian AD Magazine.
