Jeppe Utzon is a third generation architect and fourth generation designer. As the grandson of the famous Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who created the Sydney Opera House, Jeppe continues a rich family tradition through his work in the art of architecture. He runs a design studio in the historic centre of Copenhagen, and is doing projects for clients in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The projects are as diverse as private luxury homes in Denmark, eco holiday resorts in Nicaragua, iconic commercial buildings in Shanghai, and floating social housing in Bolivia.
As a designer, his career was kick-started by his multiple award winning Jeppe Utzon BBQ for Electrolux. Since then his furniture and product design work has grown considerably and now accounts for half of his studio’s work. In 2014 he started a design collaboration with dk3 and introduced the JEPPE UTZON TABLE #1 for dk3 in 2015.
