The furniture by Per Holland Bastrup, stand as experimental icons that have been created, almost as sculptures, but still functional sculptures. As a furniture designer, he is driven by refinement. He explores statics, stability, and the uses of materials. He merges geometric shapes, boils them all the way down so you can't subtract or add without the expression becoming anemic. Per Holland Bastrup lives up to the expression "less is more".
