Lise and Hans Isbrand are Danish furniture designers who produce useful, ergonomic, and aesthetically pleasing solutions. They collaborate with manufacturers of office furniture, schoolroom furniture, and other types of furniture to create both single products and whole interior decoration projects.
Lise and Hans Isbrand have shown up at the SE shows multiple times with intriguing and experimental prototypes. Their work, on the other hand, tends to be more focused on ordinary life. As a result, they are responsible for various fascinating workplace furniture, inventive culinary utensils, and other items.
They opened an office in Albertslund in 1965. Architects M. Hammer, H. Moldenhawer, Herman Olsen, Ole Hagen, and Arne Jacobsen hired them as consultants. They designed various items, including furniture, radio and television sets, shop display units, and the P. Jeppesen, Copenhagen, 1966 PJ 35 chair in laminated wicker cane and chromium.
Their work was displayed at the ‘Formes Danoises’ exhibition in Monaco in 1966, the ‘Danish Arts and Crafts and Industrial Design’ exhibition in Copenhagen in 1967, and the ‘Two Centuries of Danish Design’ exhibition in London in 1968. The PJ35 chair was on display at the Whitechapel Gallery in London in 1970 as part of the ‘Modern Chairs 1918-1970’ exhibition.
