Anders Nørgaard was born in 1958 in Sønderborg, Denmark. He graduated from the Aarhus School ofArchitecture in 1989. His design company is situated in Århus, Denmark. The principals of Anders Nørgaard's designs are simplicity and tightness. He grew up with functionalism. The design of Wegner and Friis & Moltke were a part of his early childhood. As he puts it 'my childhood was heavily influenced by the classics'. This heritage influences the way he looks at design - he doesn't see furniture design as an art form.
