The designer

Per Hånsbæk


With a passion for equal parts materials, design and functionality architect Per Hånsbæk has developed a long line of Skovby dining room furniture for more than 30 years. Each piece of furniture has the characteristic Hånsbæk signature – a distinct balance between design and functionality, which he believes to be of equal importance.

Several Hånsbæk designs are patented. For example, the rectangular #27 table that easily extends from a seating capacity of six to twenty people, and the round #33 table which extends in three directions when turning a plate under the table top, making room for nine people.
This type of functionality and flexibility is consistent in many other designs by Hånsbæk.

Besides the tables, Hånsbæk has designed many chairs, sideboards and display cabinets.
