Danish designer, ARDE blends his homegrown minimalism with elements of the unexpected, to create designs that pique the imagination.

The epitome of architecture and design.

ARDE is the first two letters of ‘Architect’ and ‘Designer’ and the products coming from this progressive design studio merges the best of these to realms. The aesthetics of architecture with the magic touches of lead designer René Hougaard’s progressive vision ensure designs that are art in the form of functionality and beauty.

As ARDE says:

“Furniture is art in form of functionality and beauty. When a design has art, it strikes a chord with the consumer”
