Our designer wins the Young Talent Award

Happy news – our designer Morten Grønning Nielsen has won the Danish Design Award in the “Young Talent” category with his independent project “Happaratus” .

The Danish Design Award focuses on the value and impact of design. Young Talent Award is given to outstanding talents under 30 years old, who exemplify the Nordic design tradition.  Happaratus is a disruptive tool which makes it possible to manually shape hard materials such as stone and wood with more sensitivity. The Happaratus “power glove” extends the capabilities of the hand as a sculpting tool and links innovation back to Scandinavian crafts traditions.
