The two Danish designers Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) met at the School of Interior Design where they both studied in the 1950s. But it was only when they both gained some experience abroad that they met again in 1960 and agreed on their design philosophy: Perfection, Aesthetics, Minimization.
A year later, in 1961, they unite and found an architecture studio. Although the two designers have individually created some interesting pieces, it is in pairs that they have achieved their greatest success. During the eight years of collaboration they have managed to create a wide selection of the highest quality designs and have left a legacy of honored work in museums around the world: from the Museu de Arte in Sao Paulo to the MoMA in New York and the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris.
