With a strong passion to move boundaries in the use of materials, new technology and manufacturing processes, his designs are not only beautiful, but provide maximum value for the user.

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

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. ARDE challenges the norms of furniture design to create visually stunning pieces with optimal usability. Optimizing materials with beautiful touches and clever functionality, furniture from ARDE is the epitome of architecture and design.

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