Louise Campbell graduated from the London College of Furniture in 1992 and later completed her training in industrial design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Design in 1995.
The following year she founded her own design studio but her real recognition as a designer Campbell got when she won a competition to design a chair for the Crown Prince of Denmark in 2002. The winning entry was the Prince chair made of laser cut steel in the shape of a perforated seat shell on to which a water-cut neoprene layer was glued. The Prince Chair was put in production by HAY.
Today Campbell is a leading professional in contemporary Danish design and experiments with free, unconstrained forms and new technologies. Her designs are produced by internationally renowned brands such as Louis Poulsen, Muuto, Stelton and Holmegaard.
From 2008 to 2010 Campbell was chairman of the committee for Design and Craft at the Danish Art Foundation. In 2014 she was appointed Guest of Honor at IMM Cologne Furniture Fair, where she initiated the annual ideal house, Das Haus. She is also on the advisory board of both Denmark Design School and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
Campbell is represented at international museums such as MoMa in New York, Die Neue Samlung in Munich and at the Musée National D’Art Moderne in Paris. Since 2004 Louise Campbell has been awarded prestigious prizes such as the Finn Juhl Architectural Award (2004), the Bruno Mathsson Award (2007), the Martha & Paul Renee Gaugains foundation’s artist’s award (2011) and in 2015 she was given the Danish Art Foundation’s lifetime honorary award.
Campbell's Prince Chair was a part of the Female Traces exhibition at the Museum of Furniture Studies in 2019/2020.
