Simple form, perfect proportions. Carl-Henrik Spak is a Swedish industrial and furniture designer whose work focuses on the end-user – on comfort, quality and usefulness. He believes that trends come and go, while human beings have a particular anatomy and a limited amount of forms of expression. And regardless of trends, furniture should last, both practically and mentally. C-H Spak’s role models come from the Bauhaus school, from the early part of the 20th century, up to the 1930s.
C-H Spak was born in Gothenburg in 1943. He trained at HDK/University of Gothenburg and at the Royal College of Art in London. He has worked for several producers, both as head designer and on commission, in Sweden and also in Holland.
In 1972 C-H Spak won the competition Koltricht in Belgium and he has also won many prizes, including those awarded by the magazines Forum and Residence.
