The design trio VE2 is made up of three creative individuals: Hugo Dines Schmidt, Tilde Nygaard and Morten Lauritzen. In the interface between form and space, the ambition is to create cohesion via characteristic and aesthetic designs with a clear functional justification.
They come from various parts of the country, but all three qualified in industrial design from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark and worked with established design houses and architects before establishing VE2 in 2007. It is in everyday life, the people in it and the fact of making a difference that they find inspiration for new designs and projects. And they do not prefer one material above any other, but enjoy working with all materials that can be designed, become enhanced with age and reflect a ‘life’ or be combined with something new. Hugo, Tilde and Morten are sterling individuals with a strong functional aesthetic sense and a pronounced ability for adapting. Separately and together they weigh up the good in life in general and the design studio in particular. And they are on the move and yet very much present in the now at one and the same time. They unwind and enjoy life. Hugo prefers Svinkløv Badehotel, Tilde the sea shore at the end of her road, and Morten a well-provided table with family and friends around it.
