In the early years at Krohn & Hartvig Rasmussen Knud Holscher had supported the rule that partners should retire from the firm at the age of 65. However, when he himself turned 65 many years later, in 1995, Knud Holscher was nowhere near ready to retire.
Thus he bought out his design studio of KHR Architects and established Knud Holscher Design. With him he brought four young designers, three whom are partners at the firm today. The design focus of creating architectural accessories and street equipment, deriving from the time at KHR Architects, remained.
The studio designed toilets and architectural hardware as well as making a system of tactile street guidelines for the blind, an information landmark for the Copenhagen Metro called Metro Totem, and a range of street lights for Phillips.
But simultaneously the studio obtained more autonomous product design assignments. This included works for the German pen manufacturer Lamy as well designing for the iconic Italian lighting company Flos.
Knud Holscher worked with the renowned Danish architect Arne Jacobsen at his studio in Charlottenlund 1958-1964
In the 1960s and 1970s Holscher Design was a part of one of Scandinavia’s largest architectural offices, KHR Architects
In 1995 Knud Holscher bought out the design studio of KHR Architects and established Knud Holscher Design
