about

SIGNE HYTTE

Born 1985, lives and works in Copenhagen

The essence of my work is simplicity. I aim to create functional objects that can be of everyday use. I design honest solutions, both in terms of construction, materials and aesthetics. Reducing a piece to its core is - to me - the most challenging and difficult aspect of designing, but also the most rewarding.

Current clients are: MENU, NEW WORKS, WOUD

I graduated from the Design + Business school TEKO in 2012 and have also studied Aesthetics and Culture at the University of Aarhus.

Along with my own company, I currently work at &tradition
