Organic and sculptural designs made from metal
Anne designs to create creative solutions that pushes the boundaries of conventional furniture pieces. The metal acts as the core of her design – a material that allows the lines to flow without sacrificing functionality.
I design without the stereotypes breathing down my neck – more cosmopolitical.”
A love for
“Metal gives you freedom. I love its elegant expression and that it can be formed, bent and cast in infinite ways. It is a timeless, living and strong material. The organic and sculptural aspects of my design add some softness to the metal that allows it to fit into a multitude of spaces.”
Whether it is because Anne came with a different perspective or used metal long before the Danish homes were ready to adapt it as an acceptable material is unknown, but when Anne Linde designs were about to make it into the world, she was hit with a good ol’ “who do you think you are”-attitude from the really big companies. They were interested in buying her designs, but only at a price that did not even cover one month of rent.
“Then I thought: oh well, might as well do it myself then. Let’s talk to some manufacturers and have some samples made.”
This freedom is not only part of Anne’s process, but reaches into the rooms in which her products are used: “Many of the pieces fit into even the smallest of spaces but can equally be expanded and unfolded in bigger spaces as well.”
