Hans-Henning Pedersen

Born: 1950
Place of Birth: Bornholm, Denmark

Hans-Henning Pedersen was born in 1950 on the island Bornholm in Denmark, where he still lives. He has been working as a carpenter, cabinetmaker and wood-turner since 1975.

"Overall, I think 'Mother Nature' is the greatest designer. But, we people love getting involved, so I always try to show the material as much respect as possible. After turning it on a lathe, the wood then dries and decides the shape it is going to take. As the water from the wood evaporates, there is a lot of stress changes, which can result in fantastic shapes!"

Hans’ work has featured in numerous exhibitions in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Dubai and the USA. He has shown at Collect, SOFA Chicago, SOFA New York, Design Days Dubai and many more.

Hans-Henning exhibited in our Wood exhibition, April 2019.
