Life is his source of inspiration. He would rather exaggerate than be boring, and he prefers the island of Samsø, Denmark and city of Milan to all other places in the world. Bent Krebs is a man with a zest for life and he does not allow formality to get in the way of his urge to create.
The North Jutland entrepreneur is a qualified smith and technical draughtsman, and he runs the company Krebs Design. Throughout his long career he has, among other things, developed new ideas, concepts and designs for small designs as well as major projects, established well-known brands of clothing like RedGreen and BackTee, and published books. No matter what he becomes absorbed in, Bent Krebs guarantees an uncluttered, beautiful, functional and unpretentious result. He finds it natural to work with various materials and approaches to his work, but prefers wood and textiles. And he always has ‘Design for Easy Living’ in view, which is also his slogan. His work is a natural extension of his playful and exploratory approach to life, and that is exactly why he is precisely where he wants to be. Without saying too much one can certainly say that Bent Krebs is a designer who is all-embracing – and much more besides.
