Esben Pilgaard Jørgensen
Esben became interested in craftsmanship and production from birth, when he grew up in a blacksmith family in North Jutland, where he himself is the fifth generation.
As a child, he had his daily routine in the large forging workshop, where both father, uncle and grandfather worked. At a very early age, Esben gained an in-depth knowledge of the craft and metalworking in general. And a budding creative urge arose.
Esben has a degree in Industrial Design from Aalborg University and has founded Pilgaard Design Studio.
Today, he is behind a large number of designs in both furniture and lamps, where quality and craftsmanship play a crucial role. The result is characterized by long-lasting, minimalist and classic designs.
Esben has designed the CORDYARD and the CROSSBOARDER series for MAKE nordic.
