In the early 1960s a new style trend began in the US where old warehouses were turned into living spaces. Solid wood furniture was mixed with steel, glass and fabric to decorate large open-plan living and work spaces for a young generation wishing to manifest their opinion of a more sophisticated urban society. The Loft style seen around the world today, is a result of an inherited respect for classic furniture craftsmanship blended with the need for functionality and toughness known from industrial environments. Danish designer Steven Tynan fusions the toughness of Loft style with Danish furniture craftsmanship towards an ambition of simplicity and functionality.
Pronounced “hue-guh”, Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.
Born in Odense, Denmark, later living in Copenhagen. Though initially pursuing the corporate world, Steven consistently ended up heading business related interior design tasks. Many projects required specially designed furniture and interior. Steven always found his inspiration and satisfaction in creating, and for decades has been handcrafting his own designed furniture pieces. After moving to Asia in 2004, Steven started working 100% professionally with designing and projecting contemporary restaurants, bars as well as upmarket private homes in Hong Kong and Thailand. As a clear line and style of furniture matured, Danish Loft Design evolved and continues to evolve with a huge international inspiration and with the simplicity of Danish Design.
