Danish designer Maria Bruun creates unique experiences in form and space. Much like a set designer, early in her creative process she visualises her ideas in a spatial context in relation to its surroundings. An approach that contributes to her carefully considered, sculptural designs that are a pleasure to both use and behold.
Bruun’s work often consists of a series of pieces involving familiar materials in new constellations with a unique sense of tactility and scale, to establish an interplay between recognition and renewal. Her profound love of wood and its effect on us as humans is a passion she shares with Fredericia, along with our strong connection between the past and the future. Curiosity and respect are her guide in constructing and meticulously refining a shape while honouring the natural structure of wood. She explores the parameters of a variety of materials, including metal and glass, to bring an innovative approach to classic craftsmanship techniques in her close dialogue with skilled artisans.
