ABOUT

STINE LUNDGAARD WEIGELT
b.1978

Stine Weigelt graduated in 2014 as an industrial designer from the Design School Kolding. Weigelt has founded her own studio working with furniture and product design, art pieces and projects with focus on social design. Weigelt Studio collaborates with Danish design companies such as Skagerak and FDB Møbler. Since 2010, Weigelt has exhibited her designs and experimental one-off objects in different design- and art exhibitions nationally and internationally.

The process behind the becoming of my objects is driven by a curiosity to understand, to master and to challenge techniques and materials to achieve the best possible solution in design for the specific project. To explore form, function, aesthetics and the relation between these in the definition of my personal idiom. This applies whether I work with companies such as Skagerak and FDB Møbler or with objects for exhibitions.”

In 2016, Weigelt became a part of FDB’s classic furniture tradition. With the chair Anker she established herself within the wooden stick chair tradition. Anker has since been incorporated into Designmuseum Danmark’s and Trapholt’s permanent collections for furniture design.
In 2017, Weigelt achieved the recognition of The Danish Arts Foundation by receiving a work grant for her artistic work, and the same year she received the Finn Juhl Award for her innovative contribution to Danish furniture design.

Portræt

“As a designer in a world of abundance, both motivation, purpose and ethics in creation are challenged. Knowing that the World needs not more, but better solutions, the purpose becomes to achieve some sort of balance. Between people and objects, craftsmanship and technology, art and production. All the while with respect and understanding for material, object and the recipient.
These considerations are a substantial part of my design process.”
