Søren Ulrik Petersen
b. 1961, Danish Designer
Søren Ulrik Petersen trained as cabinetmaker at Wulff’s furniture firm in Hellerup in 1985. After completing his apprenticeship he continued his education at The Danish Design School, graduating as a furniture designer in 1990. He has a functionalist approach and bases his products on the goal of promoting close interpersonal relations. One example of a design based on this aspiration is his Stick in a Box, which is a multi-function tool for household use. Søren Ulrik Petersen continues the Danish furniture and design tradition and manages to combine art and craft with a keen sense of material properties. One example of this is his dining set Essence, produced by Royal Copenhagen, which is currently used in the restaurants at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Other examples include his furniture series produced by PP Møbler, among others, and the felt cradle Swing Low. In recognition of his innovative and beautiful work, Søren Ulrik Petersen received the three-year working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation in 2000.
