Designer bio

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," says Kastholm.

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.
