Lars Holme Larsen, Bjarke Ingels and Jens Martin Skibsted had collaborated on and off for several years before founding KiBiSi in 2009. The powerful trio started up the idea-driven design company to fully exploit the synergy of their individual successful design companies and architectural firms: Kilo Design (Ki), BIG architects (Bi) and Skibsted Ideation (Si). Today, KiBiSi is considered among Scandinavia’s most influential design groups.
DRIVEN BY THE GOOD IDEA
KiBiSi’s founders have a common fondness of the good and rigorous idea. An eternal strive to deliver sincere, serious and clever products, which clearly communicate the original idea. The design trio often explores the potential of crossbreeding elements from different disciplines to create untraditional, functional and aesthetic solutions.
INTEGRATED LIGHTING DESIGN
With a holistic perspective and an architectural idea KiBiSi has created their first lighting design for Lightyears and the result is both surprising and obvious. Based on a common interest in movies, this universe was chosen as an inspirational theme for products and titles underlining the iconic nature of the designs.
