Nikolaj Duve and Kasper Meldgaard, who form the design studio Says Who, gain inspiration from the Danish designers of the 1950s and add a contemporary flavour to it.
Their style is present-day and thought through down to the smallest detail, strongly rooted in the simplicity, minimalism and functionality of the Scandinavian design tradition.
They were both born in Hjørring, Denmark, and graduated in industrial design from the University of Aalborg, Denmark. They founded the design duo Says Who – a name that indicates their willingness to challenge conventional expectations.
Nikolaj and Kasper describe themselves as ambitious and prefer to create new designs of wood. Their favourite spot is the shared design studio in the evocative Latin quarter of Aarhus. True to style, they dare to be simple, although that does not apply when it comes to their ambitions. With a steady respect for great design traditions, Nikolaj and Kasper dream of expanding into a large design team that creates contemporary Scandinavian design for international customers.
For Skagerak they have designed the Virkelyst outdoor furniture series, available here.
