Bridging aesthetics and function

  • • Morten puts his heart and soul into the furniture he makes
  • • He brands his creations with his monogram, serial number and date
  • • It takes him three to six months to craft a single piece

Morten Stenbæk’s thoughts and all that excites him revolve around the idea of creating unique, well crafted furniture and sculptural pieces. Crafting all his furniture entirely by hand, Morten's working methods require precision, dedication and the will to obtain perfection. He started out in 2007 as a hobby. “Soon I was dreaming of making it my profession. I just love the combination of designing, planning how to do it and in the end producing something really unique,” he says. In 2010 he designed his first chair and started to get orders. “It was not enough to make a living from it, so I kept my job and invested all profits into my workshop, until in 2016 I could finally quit my old job and start making furniture full time.”
