Scaffidi & Johansen für Kusch+Co
Antonio Scaffidi graduated together with Mads K. Johansen from the Danish Design School in Copenhagen. Whereas Antonio Scaffidi benefits from the symbiosis between his fiery Italian temperament and Nordic culture, Mads K. Johansen was driven by his artistic passion as cabinet maker.
In their opinion, a good-looking design doesn’t necessarily equal a good product. Good design is the interplay of creative ideas, meticulous planning, careful selection and incorporation of materials, and the inclusion of the manufacturer’s experience and know-how.
Their creative process was centered around flawless efficiency and design as comprehensible visualization. Mads K. Johansen’s life journey ended in autumn 2014.
