Simon Karkov (1932) studied at the Danish Academy of Architecture. Since the 1960s, he has worked for several architecture offices in Denmark.
In 1969 he designed the light Norm69 for the company Normann Copenhagen and got his inspiration from the nature. In 2002 Norm69 was awarded the Formland-Prize and received the title "Best Item" at the IMM in Cologne.
"I dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me. Right now I am working on a collection of furniture, a draft for a boat and more self-assembly lamps well see if they get done".
