“I am trying to design through making things that you would not necessarily be able to design in any other way, other than through the material.”
With a focus on natural light and ethereal modernism in every project, Valentina Fussell works from a belief that life is a collection of the extraordinarily ordinary moments that together make something truly powerful and meaningful. As a photographer, stylist, and writer, she offers a global style that is modern, elegant, and approachable.
Valentina's work has been featured in numerous digital and print publications places including Decor8, Houzz, Apartment Therapy, Ariadne At Home, Heart Home Magazine, My Scandinavian Home, Sf Girl by Bay, A Subtle Revelry and many more.
“I have realized that despite my greatest efforts to become a true modern design fanatic, there is a great part of me that has the deepest affection for the historical, the traditional, and the glamorous.”
From her Østerbro studio, “Bank of Style”, Laura Jørgensen designs and creates a range of unique textile items: weaving, dying, printing and sewing each by hand. Using exclusively natural materials, her focus is on creating quality products that blur the line between the modern and the traditional. Each item is carefully crafted using artisanal techniques to bring to life designs that are reflective of a fresh and contemporary aesthetic.
Laura is a textile design graduate from Copenhagen’s UCC University College and also teaches her craft through workshops.
A graduate from Central Saint Martins in London, Christoffer Skjøtt has a great understanding of danish design and love for the simple forms. Christoffer's first collection for M&R is the 'satellite' table top mirror.
The issue with many of the mirrors on the market, were that they either were unpractical or not aesthetically pleasing.
'My wife was looking for a table top mirror she could use when putting on her make up. There was always an issue with the different versions on the market, so I decided to see if I could design a version that was both practical and aesthetic'.
