Thanks for joining us for Clerkenwell Design Week 2022!
Boris Berlin is an award-winning designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. His first collaboration with Icons of Denmark resulted in the launch of our Ekko sofa – a refined, organically shaped product that fits neatly into architectural spaces with its square profile. We caught up with Boris to find out about his process, how he responded to our brief, and what inspires him to design.
For Dennis Marquart, designer of the Gab Lounge and Spire Coffee Table, the past greatly influences his contemporary design practice bringing forward a Modern aesthetic into his range of products. Having originally trained as a blacksmith, a craft with a long history, he continued his studies at the Copenhagen Design University. Dennis Marquart recently joined Jesper Jensen and Sandra Genth (Icons joint directors) to discuss his design practice and the inspiration that drives him to create.
Icons of Denmark has been working with 3D models since day one. However, in recent years, we have been working towards improving the 3D resources that we can share with our clients.
Our background working with 3D visualisation is driving us to explore BIM further as the technology evolves: about visualising our products, how they work for real-life projects and how we can implement them within projects.

On the launch of the 4T System, Jesper Jensen, Owner of Icons of Denmark spoke with Hee Welling, designer of the 4T System, to chat about how the system evolved and why it will add flexibility of choice to both designers, and users of the system, for workplace environments now and into the future.
Finding a chair that can support the postures and demands of modern working habits can be daunting, especially within the rapidly evolving workplace. We have put together a useful guide of key considerations, to help you select the right chair to suit how and where you work.
2020 was a time like no other for our industry and it invited interesting discussions on the future of the workplace. What was often a niche area of research, blossomed into mainstream discourse. Questions like, “How can we adapt to the new way of working?” or “How do we make the workplace more flexible and inviting for people to return to collaborate?” were crossing people’s minds.
In February at our first attendance of Stockholm Furniture Fair we asked the question ‘How is Work?’. What we didn’t know at the time was that this question would be more important than ever in 2020. So, How has work been for us? Our answer is that with great challenges come innovation, flexibility and perseverance.
In the extended hours we spend seated at work, our choice of chair impacts our comfort, concentration and wellbeing – whether we’re consciously aware or not. From our work with leading workplace interior designers and global clients, we have seen how seating needs to satisfy four elements for any user: flexibility, mobility, longevity and comfort – all in a form that is pleasing to the eye.
Our conclusion is the Crossover chair range.
Welcoming the Spire coffee table in leather to our collection. Produced using recycled leather, the tabletop provides a softer alternative to stone.
Icons is now ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. We are proud to share this with you as we build a more sustainable, quality-focused future for our business.
We sat down with Icons of Denmark owner Jesper Mollgaard Jensen and spoke to him about trends in the industry, the history behind the company, and what design means for Icons of Denmark.
From the 4 – 8 February, Icons of Denmark exhibited for the first time at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. The fair brings together the best of Scandinavian design as well as established international brands with a presence in the Nordic region.
