The Danish designer Nils Øllgaard studied at the University for architecture and furniture design in Aarhus, Denmark. He has been working as an industrial designer since 1981.

In his opinion materials are those who create the function of the product and therefore producers should only use materials, that best fulfilll the purpose of the products.
