    Simon Karkov

    Simon Karkov (°1932)

    Simon Karkov graduated in architecture from The Danish Academy of Architecture. Since the sixties he has been working for several architecture offices in Denmark. Today Simon is enjoying his retirement in Turkey working on smaller projects. He is inspired by nature and the geometric patterns that occur within flowers, as reflected in his iconic lamp designs for Normann Copenhagen.

    On his design philosophy: “Whenever I get an idea I draw a sketch which is then transformed into a model. The model is then adjusted over a period of time until the final prototype can be done. I dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me.”
