John Brauer, founder of the Danish furniture company Essey, graduated from the Kea School of Design and Architecture in Copenhagen.
His own philosophy and desire are to reasign its primary functions to furniture and its design.
His challenge, to produce a design whose aesthetic approaches its function by establishing a symbolic functionalism.
Getting closer to nature where the shape is defined by its function. In order to be able to do this, he travels the world in search of new cultures and inpiration for his creations.
His first design was the table Move in 1992, then the table Illusion who has a great success.
He also collaborates with the Finnish self-taught designer Tarmo Likki, who mainly works with leather.
