To WOUD, Benny Frandsen has always been a close and honest collaborator. His appreciation of design aligns strongly with the values of WOUD and have generated a solid foundation for professional conversations and now a common lighting series.

“One day Benny and I discussed potential lighting designs, he said that we needed a lighting series targeting the contract market. Then I said, with a twinkle in my eye, that he must be the right man to draw a series to us”
