Jacob Plejdrup

A multicultural life in Denmark, England, Germany and Switzerland has had a decisive influence on Jacob Plejdrup’s design philosophy, since he began his career in the furniture and interior business back in 1991. The culmination came in 2009, when Jacob Plejdrup and his wife Ann Plejdrup founded dk3 to place undivided focus on creating design furniture under the dk3 brand, combining nature’s aesthetic elements with pure and timeless design.

With his designs, Jacob Plejdrup wishes to move the beauty of nature indoor in a minimalistic way, and this design vision was embodied in the dk3_3 table, which was launched in 2009 as one of the first plank tables on the Scandinavian market. The table played a major role in the birth and establishment of dk3, and the design heritage has been maintained and passed on to several other dk3 products since then.

Jacob’s passion for wood is evident in all his works, and he constantly aims to highlight rather than hide the natural characteristics of the tree. To him the natural structure of each individual plank is a kind of treasure making the final piece of furniture unique. He is the designer behind a wide range of dk3 products, such as the TREE TABLE and dk3_3 TABLE series, the LESS IS MORE TABLE, the LOWLIGHT and HIGHLIGHT TABLE and the sideboard GRAND SIDEBOARD. And then he developed the 10th anniversary table TEN TABLE in 2019 in cooperation with Danish designer Christian Troels.
