Preben Juul Fabricius (1931-1984) was a Danish furniture designer who worked together with Jørgen Kastholm. During the 1960s, the pair designed a wide range of pieces for the Alfred Kill who had a furniture factory in Fellbach, near Stuttgart. Fabricius trained as a cabinetmaker under Niels Vodder before attending the School for Interior Design where he studied under Finn Juhl. Here, he met blacksmith Jørgen Kastholm. They had a common approach to furniture design, never wanting to compromise on aesthetics. In 1961, the pair set up a design studio in a Gentofte cellar without any firm arrangements with manufacturers. In 1965, they exhibited at the furniture fair in Fredericia where the German furniture manufacturer Alfred Kill noticed their work. The pieces of furniture they produced during their seven-year period of cooperation from 1961 to 1968 were so distinctive that many are still produced today as classics.
