Meet our designers

We believe that fresh perspectives pave the way for change, and that creativity thrives on diversity, curiosity, openness, and collaboration.

The passion for Scandinavian design has nothing to do with where you are born but has everything to do with what you love. That is why our design collective includes more than 60 talented designers from 19 countries around the world – all with a shared passion for sustainable ideas and New Scandinavian Design. Meet a few of them below.

Studio Nooi was founded by Giulia Pesce and Ruggero Bastita who met while studying and working as designers in Italy and Denmark.
Nooi derives from the Italian word “noi”, meaning “us” – the idea being that design is never an individual act but rather a collaborative process, involving designers, companies, users, artisans and technicians. Nooi’s designs are always the result of good cooperation between people and influenced by society, art, nature and cultural heritage, and the designers are closely involved at every stage of the project development.


Ramón Esteve is an architect and designer. Each project is born with the aim of creating complete environments through the interaction between both disciplines, where design and architecture come together to generate a complete experience for the user. In the field of product design, his work has been recognized with numerous international awards including the Red Dot Design Award and the NYCxDesign Award. He has also appeared on the AD100 list, and in 2018 the Forbes magazine included him in its list of the World’s 100 Most Creative People.


The renowned design duo Glismand & Rüdiger come from Denmark – an origin that is clearly expressed in their design language. For them, Scandinavian design is not a label, but a commitment in their work and a concept they like to interpret in new and modern ways. Inspired by Scandinavian nature and traditional materials, they design furniture that is based on simplicity, excellent craftsmanship and honest materials. 

“We have a shared passion for Scandinavian design and natural materials. Sustainability is at the core of all our new designs. Right from the initial sketch to the final design, because the most important thing for us is to create beautiful designs that can survive different trends and generations.”

The German design duo's goal is to create simple and intuitive products - something that isn't over-complicated, yet is still beautiful. They strive to design functional products that are simple and straightforward, yet poetic. 

"For us, good design is when it feels like it's never been any different. Something that makes sense when you look at it, or something that gives you an intense feeling of pleasure."

My style is characterized by keeping the focus on the detail and "edge" that separates my designs from the crowd. One of my biggest influences is to register how much diversity there is among people and try to meet the very different needs that it creates.

I've always been fascinated by the craftsmanship and the interaction between craftsman and designer. Good design is what gives meaning and value to the people who use it.

Michael H. Nielsen


My designs are characterized through fine structures, certain transparencies and subtle details adapted in pure shapes. My designs aim towards an aesthetic synergy of material and form. I believe that a decorative element should walk hand in hand with a useful purpose. For me, function and aesthetic are a unified whole.

We are Nikolaj and Kasper. We are Says Who Design. We like to tell stories through our products. Stories that add character and relevance to the user experience. We love simple, clever yet masculine design. Rawness expressed through refined details. We always strive to add personality to the product. An edge or feature that defines its use, style or statement.

Good design is useful, characteristic and tells a story. It leaves a lasting impression that enriches our lives in ways we never thought of before. When design is at its best, it enriches our everyday lives and experiences.
