In 1996 Louise Campbell set up her own studio, from where she has worked independently since. She focuses on furniture and lighting design, but the studio is increasingly involved in product design and interior design projects as well.
Her client list is long and varied, including companies such as Louis Poulsen, Zanotta, HAY, Stelton, Muuto, Interstop and The Danish Ministry of Culture.
Louise Campbell’s work is playful and experimental. The combination of Scandinavian rationalism and femininity, and perhaps her dual nationality, give her works an unusual edge. Demonstrating contrasts seem to be an issue, that keeps returning in her work.
The "Prince Chair" (2002), produced by HAY, combines a very personal expression with extremely high tech manufacturing methods.
Her studio is also known for its interest in less commercial activities. Among from curating and creating exhibitions, Louise Campbell has taken part in numerous activities aiming at improving the design environment in Denmark. Among these initiatives is "Walk the Plank", a collaboration lasting seven years between 30 furniture designers and 60 cabinet makers, who have all devoted their time and original design ideas for a truly fine cause.
There are a few ground rules the studio aims to act on: Always start from scratch. Everything is possible until the opposite has been proven. There must be a good reason for every single decision made.
Louise Campbell received numerous awards and prizes. In 2005 she won the IF Product Design Award in gold for the lamp "Campbell Pendant", which she had custom-build for Louis Poulsen.
