Founding her own studio in Copenhagen in 1998, the Maison et Objet Paris, designer of the year soon knew what she wanted to do. Developing a clear style, always straight to the point while never forgetting the warmth factor, the functionality of her pieces relies on.“If I can’t express the reason for creating a new product, I prefer to refrain from doing it”, she says.
A Scandinavian mindset from an infinite palette of materials she creates eclectic creations. Humility, minimalism and an immense respect for the materials she uses. She will be presenting the fruit of her latest research at M&O this January.
Inspirational and simplicity mark the designers works. Versatility is one of the focal points of this designer. Bringing with her the charm, authenticity and warmth, the Dane designer is inspired by the bustling city and the quiet and peace of her garden.
Balancing this two distinct sets in her life, her lifestyle and relationships she maintains with everyone around her are focal for her creative process. Now in her 40s, the Maison et Objet winner, has already won the Crown Prince Couple’s Culture Award in 2014.
“Despite her taste for experimenting with new materials and exploring original functions, whenever she sits down at her drawing table the process is invariable. Every new design starts with countless sketches and models and a close dialogue and collaboration with the manufacturer. A visit to the production line may refine the result and match the techniques used in each particular factory.”
While the Scandinavian design is the chosen one, colour is a fundamental element in the creative process. A specific colour palette developed in the early stages of the project, the designer explains that is a way to assert the product’s identity.
