Designed by
Christen Sorensen

After working in the Danish furniture industry for twelve (12) years, Christen Sorensen became profoundly aware of its shortcomings. This awareness prompted him to apply for admission to the "Kunsthandwærkerskolen" (Copenhagen's School for Arts and Crafts) to study design.

On the Faculty were some of Denmark's most famous architects and designers. Hans J. Wegner, Borge Mogensen, Bender Madsen, Jorn Utzon (Architect of the Sydney Opera House), Ejner Larsen and others.

After completing his studies at Design School, Sorensen opened a furniture design and production studio in Copenhagen. He participated in numerous competitions and exhibitions. One of these being the Triennale in Milan/1955. His chairs were also exhibited throughout Scandinavia. Amongst his contemporaries/friends were Werner Panton, FinnJuhl, Bender Madsen, Greta Jalk, Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel and Poul Kjærholm with whom he developed some very avant-garde chairs, even by today's standards.

Sorensen arrived in Montreal in 1956 where he was involved in many design projects: airport interiors, 3 pavilions for Expo' 67, commercial interiors, and furniture. At one point, he even tried his hand at teaching, but this was not for him!

In the 1980's Christen Sorensen began to work with Keilhauer. He feels that his association with them has been a happy, productive and fortunate one.
