“A GRID is more than meets the eye. It’s what you want it to be.” Peter J. Lassen
GRID arose in 2004 from Peter J. Lassen’s ambition to design an interior system with unprecedented adaptability for the user, be it commercial or artistic. An interior system that is a visual expression without compromising functionality.
Peter J. Lassen (1930), is also the founder of design icon Montana Furniture, known for its shelving system. Peter J. Lassen has been working in the furniture industry since 1954. During his time as managing director of the furniture producer Fritz Hansen (1955-1978), he cooperated with architects such as Arne Jacobsen, Jørn Utzon, Piet Hein and Verner Panton. Their influence can be seen in the clear lines of his designs.
Art is also an inspiration for Peter J. Lassen, who finds that, “art inspires, gives us energy and sets us free.” It is this sense of freedom, experience and movement, which he aspires to give the users of GRID. As Peter J. Lassen states, “Good art is characterised by never fully revealing itself – there is always another layer, another interpretation – we never become tired of art or nature because there is always another angle.” This inspiration is evident in GRID’s durability and adaptability.
