Holscher Design History


Holscher Design was founded as an independent design studio in 1995 by the renowned architect and industrial designer Knud Holscher.


But the agency goes back even further to 1971, when architect Knud Holscher established it as a part of KHR Architects.


Knud Holscher, who is one of the most influential designers in Scandinavia, began his career at the studio of the world-famous Arne Jacobsen

Many of Knud Holscher’s designs are world renowned classics and his work has had a strong impact on the Danish design scene.


Today, Holscher Design is one of Scandinavia’s most recognized and award-winning design agencies with over 70 awards and more than 40 years of experience. The studio’s core output is designing products, graphics, service design and design strategies.
