Iceland is famous for its unique landscapes. Soon, visitors to the country could be able to book luxury accommodations without feeling like they’ve left the outdoors. The design firm Johannes Torpe has proposed an Icelandic spa and resort that disappears into its surroundings.
"A busy man, with powerful design ideas, The Memo asked Torpe how he’s transforming the face of retail with Bang & Olufsen’s store."
"Striking a balance between a brand’s history and its dedication to innovation is at the core of Johannes Torpe Studio’s installations created for the Nike office in China. The Copenhagen-based studio placed a collection of brand installations within the space, reflecting on the company’s legendary foundational stories whilst championing its progress."
"Johannes Torpe runs an international design studio, out of Copenhagen, with a passion for breaking away from mediocrity, pushing creativity forward. He practices The Five Tibetans daily, and had countless sleepless nights trying to re-brand the Danish icon Bang & Olufsen, which he successfully mastered in 2013."
“Danish business and financial newspaper Børsen interviews Johannes Torpe on how to make it in a very competitive business with nothing more than a belief in yourself and your own abilities. It is also in this interview he announces his decision to leave Bang & Olufsen as their Group Creative Director.”
