Lars Vejen graduated from the Aarhus School of Architecture, Department of Furniture and Space Design in 1996 after returning from a stay in Japan in 1995. His professional career began at one of Denmark's leading architectural firms straight after graduation. Here he quickly gained responsibility of the company's interior- and design projects. After 18 years, hereof more than 10 years as Head of Design he took over parts of the company assets and have since 1st September 2014 been running his own design studio.

Today, Lars Vejen works internationally with a wide group of clients within many different types of products – from small to big scale, from jewelry and furniture to lighting, textiles and building components. Always with form and function – the balance of design – as the dna of his projects.

Lars Vejen uses his background as an architect to extract the essence of a need. To see a potential in the context of a space, in architecture and in the people without whom none of it would make much sense. Great inspiration is for Lars found simply by living life. Seeing the way human, things, shapes, nature, structure and elements interacts. Knowledge gathered from years of experience with a wide range of very different professional partners gives him valuable insight and cross-references to enhance creativity. He always get the same great pleasure in finding the right solution – finding the balance.

“My professional passion is very simple; I love finding and shaping the good idea! I enjoy seeing it realized in collaboration with talented people within their separate fields of handcraft, engineering, marketing, sales and logistics. Design thinking when it is best and works in full understanding and acknowledgement of the value of all people involved in a product development”.
