In his own words, the studio of Architect Louis Weisdorf (born 1939) specialises in versatility. This, quite perfectly, sums up the long and notable career of this multi talented designer. Since graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Architecture in 1954, Weisdorf has excelled in everything from graphic, interior and industrial design, to the planning of parks as well as many fields within the building trade. His work often exhibits a form that appears simple in conception yet has great complexity in structure and execution and which through ingenious construction combines lightness with strength. It is this juxtaposition that attracts him to the architecture and design of Japan. This fascination is reflected in some of his best work, the Turbo for example. Now made by Gubi it is a design that is almost fifty years old and its reissue is the cherry on an impressive résumé which includes working with such greats as Verner Panton, Poul Henningsen and Le Klint.
