LindDNA - Danish design from a family
The sisters Bine and Mie Lind founded the design company LindDNA in 2013. Together with their father they developed the idea of designing products out of recycled leather one evening at the dining table. The designs of the sisters should fit the Danish design tradition and reinterpret it. Furniture and accessories and decoration should be created out of Danish products and recycled materials that are simple, functional and yet sensual.
The leather used at LindDNA comes of leather remnants, incurred in the production of bags, shoes and other items of clothing. This leather is an environmentally friendly and resource-saving variant contrasting conventional leather because it is cut and reconnected with natural rubber. Thereby, the recycled LindDNA leather is very robust, water resistant and dirt repellent thanks to the 20% of rubber it contains.
Danish wood and durability
The harsh Scandinavian forests - in particular the Danish oak trees - are always a topic in the designs of LindDNA. Oak is a robust and hard wood that is strong and durable. Durability is very important for LindDNA and in the first place when it comes to design. It's the same with wool or other materials. They all come from Denmark and are edited in utmost care in local workshops. Every step is at best executed by hand. That takes longer, makes each piece unique and develops an own story in the creative process. The label "Made in Denmark" is no business strategy but of a lifestyle at LindDNA.
The Lind DNA
Each member of the family Lind supported the ideas of the two sisters from the beginning. All the steps from the design to the finished piece of furniture will be supervised and accompanied by a member of the family. The DNA of the family Lind is not only part of the name, but also of the design and the materials, processes and staff.
The composition of family business, extraordinary ideas, recycled leather and materials from Denmark creates a design that connects to Scandinavian tradition, and is functional and sustainable but aesthetically.
