Construction, aesthetic, Scandinavian simplicity and functionality – Mads Johansen was a designer who captured it all in one elegant piece. Mads grew up in Jutland's countryside and graduated from The Danish Design School in 2009. The Johansen dining table, inspired by suspension bridges, shows Mads' great passion for subtle details in timber. Mads Johansen always kept his designs simple and was known for adding a personal whimsical twist in the construction. With his background as a cabinetmaker he never compromised on the quality of materials and good cabinetmaking. A dear friend of Great Dane, Mads simply loved to play with wood and find new construction methods, inspired by nature and the well built environment around him he was able to pave the way for contemporary Scandinavian designers.
