Kaare Sølvsten // M.A.A, M.D.D, PAR
In 2001, Lotus started collaborating with architect and cabinetmaker Kaare Sølvsten. His passionate commitment and simple, stylish mode of expression has characterised the design aspect of the company in close collaboration with our engineers and manufacturers.
With a professional depth and competence both within the tradition of Danish craftsmanship and his training in architecture at the School of Arts and Crafts and at the School of Architecture at the Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Kaare Sølvsten’s work has been awarded numerous prizes and he has gained recognition as one of the country’s pre-eminent architects.
Kaare Sølvsten has a genuine love for the craftsmanship and materials, and this shines through in the stoves he has designed for Lotus. According to Kaare Sølvsten, quality is inextricably linked to the union of functionality, technology and design. He takes a holistic approach to his work, meaning that he thinks in terms of the whole rather than a series of fragments put together. Therefore, the design process should endeavour to take all conditions and needs into account.
