In 1953 23-year-old Torben Ørskov established the company – the idea was to design simple, functional and attractive articles.
Today the company has been taken over by the second generation in the family Jeppe Ørskov together with Carsten Egtved, who own and carry on the business. Both have more than 20 years of experience in dealing with design and arts and crafts, and the basic idea of the design strategy laid down in 1953 is still being upheld.
We will continue to evolve new ideas for exciting articles, which can be developed and produced by the business connections we already know and have confidence in.
Focus will be on our core competences and above all we will continue to use the materials
we are already familiar with such as leather, textiles, glass, wood and melamine. It is also important for us to draw inspiration from outside to keep up the pulse of our products.
Over the years we have cooperated with important and well-known Danish designers. However, we shall also welcome new designers, their ideas and initiatives.
On the basis of our long history and experience we will continue to produce functional and good design, recognisable to the consumer.
Quality of design and materials is a core value to Ørskov & Co. We know the materials we deal with, and we make a point of creating articles which can be enjoyed for a long period of time. The design must be functional and fit for many purposes.
We want to create “design classics” of the future, which together with the existing products can give great pleasure in everyday life.
