Before opening her own studio in 1992, industrial designer Maria Berntsen, studied at the Academy of Art in Copenhagen and L’Ecole d’Architecture de Bordeaux. Maria takes a great deal of inspiration from architecture, nature and fashion. Working with a variety of materials, she loves working with glass the most.

”When I approach a new project, I start by looking for its nerve, its spirit. A beginning. It is like stepping into a special space where your heart can speak. A place where everything is possible, and I am able to look at everything with a new energy and without prejudice or preconception. I visualize how the product will be used and the presence it has in a room – and based on this feeling, I start to think in form and function” – Maria Bernsten.
