    After studying furniture design in the early 1990s at the Danish College of Design and the Art Centre College in Switzerland, Matthias Bengtsson co-founded the design collective Panic, which helped to create new opportunities and support for young Danish designers.  Bengtsson moved to London in 1996 to study design at the Royal College of Art under Ron Arad and eventually became a creator of the design collaborations At the Third Stroke and Design Laboratory.  By 2002 Bengtsson had established his own studio and, after gaining international acclaim for his “Slice” series, exhibited widely throughout Europe, the United States and Asia.  Currently Bengtsson lives and works in London.
