Peter (LinkedIn) has a Swedish as well as an American Master of Science in Engineering Physics and a doctorate in Physics (Ph.D.), condensed matter theory. Among other things, he has proposed the concepts of Dynamic metrology and Deterministic sampling in an international context. He has worked with wood constructions since childhood, in recent years practiced as a semi-professional hobby.
The company Kapernicus AB was created in the light from one contemporary and two historical giants, Robert Maynard Pirzig (born 1928), Leonardo Da Vinci (born 1519) and Nicholaus Copernicus (born 1543). The statement “…And what is good, Phaedrus, And what is not good – Need we ask anyone to tell us these things” from Pirsig’s book “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance” emphasizes the importance of quality and that we actively use it beyond our awareness. That relates to the novel uncertainty quantification methods of Kapernicus Science, and the quality of Kapernicus Art products, e.g. stability and durability of our art frames. We believe this measures of perceived quality is almost without exception decisive for our choices.
In the old days, art and science was not separated as in modern times. Individuals like Da Vince were active in both art and science, similar to Kapernicus AB. Da Vinci also had a remarkable ability to experience his constructions before they were even manufactured — just like we have the ambition to visualize all aspects of our products even before the first prototype is made.
Kapernicus is derived from Copernicus. Minor modifications are made to reflect the spirit and the name of the founder, Ka (a spiritual entity, an aspect of the individual, believed to live within the body [Egyptian]) — Pe (Founder) — rnicus. Like Copernicus found the earth evolves around the sun, our work (the arc of our logotype) evolves around our novel ideas (the red circle).
