Simon Legald is educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where he graduated in 2012. His work has consisted of both small- and large-scale products. Hid design is characterized by strong focus on functionality, products which purpose of use is understandable without explanation.
The core of his design is that the products should be used and therefore must meet not only functional aspects, but also aesthetic. Simon does not want to add unnecessary details, he works with simplicity by hightlighting necessities instead of hiding them. In 2012, Simon Legald designed the series Form as his thesis. Three years later, the series began to be manufactured by Normann Copenhagen and has since won numerous design awards. Today, Form tables and chairs are Normann Copenhagen’s most popular products.
