Denmark, founded in 2009
KIBISI was founded in 2009. The company is a partnership between three architects/designers, and its name comprises the first letters from each of their individual companies that joined forces in the shared project.
Ki – Kilo Design, founded by Lars Holme Larsen, architect and furniture designer. Kilo Design takes as its starting point the huge spectrum of expressions that arise in the creative field – everything from established art to street paintings – and makes use of same in its work to create simple yet distinctive solutions to complex design issues.
Bi – Bjarke Ingels Group, founded by Bjarke Ingels, the architect. The company bases its work on a belief that society will develop in a positive direction, and that the architect can assist in highlighting solutions that match a time when more and more of us live hectic everyday lives in the city, but are developing an increasing consciousness of the nature that shapes us.
Si – Skibsted Ideation, founded by Jens Martin Skibsted, designer and philosopher. Jens Martin Skibsted’s fundamental idea is that a strong design profile and positive identification with the objects with which we choose to surround ourselves can help to change the way we act. One of his best-known projects is the Biomega bicycle.
It is through the juxtaposition of large scale and detail, architecture, design and technology that the three creative forces behind KRIBSI have succeeded in generating a shared space where they can give free rein to their effervescent design idiom. It is here that they can utilise their simultaneously intuitive and analytical approach to the needs of modern people, and transform this into design that carries on timeless tradition but whose expression is very much at the cutting edge.
