Mette Schelde

Danish Architect Mette Schelde (b 1985) works from a starting point in function and everyday situations.

‘All my work takes it starting point in the function. The function can both have a concrete utility or be more based on sensual functions that are capable of being perceived by the senses. The process takes place in my universe across disciplines of exploring drafting, sketching, testing, and building. Design is a language telling a story by reflecting the integrated values. It can be sensed in the quality of the function, choice of material, craftsmanship techniques and the aesthetic idiom of the object.’

Mette Schelde Studio, founded in 2012, has received several awards and nominations for its work and exhibited prototypes and one-offs at design and art exhibitions internationally. Several products have been put into production through collaboration with renowned Danish design companies.
