LindDNA - Danish design from a single family
Sisters, Bine and Mie Lind, jointly founded the company LindDNA in 2013. Together with their father, they developed the idea of designing products from recycled leather one evening at the dining table. The sisters’ designs should fit Danish design tradition and reinterpret it. Furniture, accessories, and decorations should be created from Danish products and recycled materials that are simple, functional, and yet still sensual.
The leather used at LindDNA comes from 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. This means that the recycled LindDNA leather is very robust, water-resistant, and dirt repellent thanks to its 20% rubber content.
Danish wood and durability
The harsh Scandinavian forests - in particular Danish oak trees - are always a topic in designs at LindDNA. Oak is a robust and hard wood that is strong and durable. Durability is very important for LindDNA and especially when it comes to design.
It's the same with wool or other materials. They all come from Denmark and are used with the utmost care in local workshops. Every step is, at best, executed by hand. That takes longer, makes each piece unique, and develops its own story in the creative process. The label "Made in Denmark" is not a business strategy, but rather 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 are supervised and accompanied by a member of the family. The DNA of the Lind family 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 with Scandinavian tradition and is functional and sustainable, as well as aesthetic.
