Johannes Foersom & Peter Hiort-Lorenzen

Peter Hiort-Lorenzen and Johannes Foersom have been working with Lammhults since the mid-1980s, so in some ways they are elder statesmen of Lammhults design today. They have been an instrumental part of the shift within Lammhults to become a more international company, not only because of their Danish nationality, but because of what Johannes refers to as "that little chair". That would be Campus. Campus has been a great success both in Sweden and abroad. The chair has been given several awards.
