As the son of Jørgen Kastholm, Thomas Bo
Kastholm was born into a family that lived for furniture
design. Following in the footsteps of his father, designer Jørgen
Kastholm, Thomas Bo Kastholm studied interior design at the Danish
Design School, graduating in 1989.
Since then, Kastholm has worked for studios in both Denmark and
Germany. His collaboration with Carl Hansen & Søn in 2009 began
with the design of the TK8 Daybed.
For this piece he started with the materials he knows and loves
the best: steel and leather. "I wanted to create a bench with
simple, honest lines. The materials should speak for themselves and
this happens best when the design is straightforward and clear,"
The TK8 Daybed, with its close ties to the core principles of
classic, modern Danish design, achieved the simplicity and clarity
Kastholm strived for and became an instant success.
With its sleek and straightforward appearance and seamless
combination of leather, wood and stainless steel, the TK8 has a
powerful presence that fits as neatly into Copenhagen Airport as
into the family living room.
