Salto & SigsgaardDENMARK
“Our approach to design is to search for a problem and then solve it in the best possible way.”
Since 2003, Kasper Salto, designer, and Thomas Sigsgaard, architect, have been working together on design projects in their studio in Copenhagen. Kasper Salto completed his formal training as a cabinetmaker in 1988 before qualifying as a designer, graduating from the Danish Design School in 1994. Thomas Sigsgaard qualified as an architect in 1995; he has worked for Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, among other design firms. As a team they worked within lighting design before winning the competition to design new furniture for the UN headquarters in New York. Their prize-winning design comprised new tables and the “Council Chair”.
In 2014, Salto & Sigsgaard have designed the Guest chair for Montana. Guest is the answer to the question: What to do with the extra chairs in the future, when urban space, both at home and in the work place, is at a premium? Stored away on the shelf on a daily basis, Guest unfolds into a comfortable guest chair in just six seconds.
