    Default My friend and former father in-law...

    This guy knew his stuff. His body of work has been a HUGE inspiration to me. His encouragement and appreciation of my work was a great help in my early years of composite bike building. Niels will be missed but absolutely not forgotten.

    Peace and love be with you always Niels.

    I only know tangentially of his work, but all of the projects listed as having his participation are great things. Those two Knoll chairs are favorites. I am sure the attached article is a fairly limited accounting of his achievements. You must have enjoyed being influenced. My condolences.

    Sorry to hear this Nick. I knew he was an influence, I always wanted to meet him after hearing you talk about him. I still think about your comment every time I look at furniture... You used to say, "never underestimate the value of a well designed chair".

    Give Em a hug from me.

    I met with him several times during college and just after I graduated; I was hoping to work with him. He was a very positive and motivating gentleman. You are very lucky to have him as part of your life. My condolences for your loss.
