Danish ship designers OSK Design appoints Bente Medelbye Hansen as new Design Director
OSK Design is happy to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Bente Medelbye Hansen, who is the new Design Director and Head of Interior & Accommodation in OSK Design. Bente comes from a position as Design Director and Department Manager in Tillberg Design of Sweden. Per 1 December 2020, Bente has taken over the daily management of the design team and interior projects in OSK Design.
“We are happy to welcome Bente aboard OSK Design. Over the years, she has built up extensive experience in project management as well as a distinct creative profile and signature line. She will bring aboard fresh insights, and we are looking forward to bringing these into play in our future ferry projects in close cooperation with our clients – existing as well as new,” says Anders Ørgård, CCO of OSK Design.
Bente Medelbye Hansen replaces Interior Architect Camilla Caroline Horn, who is widely known in this industry, and who has been managing OSK Design's interior design activities since the integration of Steen Friis Design into OSK Design in 2016. Since this integration, Steen Friis Design has undergone a significant transformation resulting in several award-winning designs, and this transformation would not have been possible without Camilla.
Anders Ørgård continues: “It is only fair to say that Camilla has been a central figure within ship design for the past two decades. Over the years, she has built up exceptional insights and experience with ship interiors – first on behalf of OSK-ShipTech, later as Head of Interior & Accommodation in Steen Friis Design. On behalf of entire OSK Design and Steen Friis Design in particular, I thank Camilla for her year-long service and dedication – I am certain that Camilla will continue to leave her distinct mark on future ship interiors.”
For Steen Friis Design and OSK Design as well, this is new and exciting times. Aside from completely disrupting both the cruise industry and passenger transportation in general, the corona pandemic is forcing all players in this industry to rethink how things are done in the future. In OSK Design, we are really excited to start this new chapter in the history of Steen Friis Design and together with our clients set new the standards in ship interiors and ferry travel trends and continue to build the brand Steen Friis Design.
