The first result of Christian Troels’ design collaboration with dk3 is the CORDUROY TABLE from 2018. And in 2019 he created the TEN TABLE in cooperation with Jacob Plejdrup.
A multicultural life in Denmark, England, Germany and Switzerland has had a decisive influence on Jacob Plejdrup’s design philosophy, since he began his career in the furniture and interior business back in 1991.
The culmination came in 2009, when Jacob Plejdrup founded dk3 to place his undivided focus on creating design furniture under the dk3 brand combining nature’s aesthetic elements with pure and timeless design.
