Philosophy & Approach
For Hans Thyge & Co, all materials possess exciting properties that are to be challenged and brought out in the design process. They believe that design is a question of stimulating memories and dreams and paving the way for new design perspectives.
Hans suggests, “Design is about telling stories. When describing these stories, you need to be able to build up things in your mind or to let things come to your mind. If you then take the essence of this, Design is about “the power of imagination”.
