About Ditte Hammerstrøm

Trained at The Danish Design School, industrial designer Ditte Hammerstrøm is often noted for her feminine aesthetic. Conceptual, sometimes even cartoonish, Hammerstrøm’s furniture preserves the clean lines and simple forms of traditional Danish interior design, while subtly subverting some of its long-accepted tenets. Color and textile play large roles in Hammerstrøm’s work—chairs are padded with overstuffed quilting, chair legs get bound in neon cords, tiny light bulbs outline white down duvets, and otherwise severe wooden furniture is embellished with gold filigree.

Danish, b. 1971, based in Copenhagen, Denmark
