What Are Making Us Standout from other Creative Agencies
Tine Mouritsen ApS is a Danish design studio founded by Architect and Designer Tine Mouritsen. Since 2006, we have made interior design, customised concept development and furniture design for a range of private and public customers.
When we build and design spaces and concepts our mission is always the same: We want to outline a concept and a well thought theme in which the whole suggests the story and the details specify the nuances. We are deeply passionate about creative problem solving using carefully prepared concepts, innovative product ideas and the love of detail.
Function and aesthetics are equally important measures when we design products and spaces. A room or a piece of furniture has to serve a certain function, but it also has to speak to our senses, our comfort, memories and sense of belonging and being present in this exact moment. We are always occupied by what is missing. How we can change the light or the small complexions in the colour scheme to make this space even more inviting, and this chair even more comforting.
In 2006, the studio changed its name to Tine Mouritsen ApS and broadened its portfolio to not only include furniture design but the whole range of interior design and concept solutions that we continue to focus on today.
What we do
Concept and idea development, moodboards and color schemes, product design, exhibition design, interior design for private clients and companies, space optimization, project and design management, furniture design for private and contractual clients, custom made furniture design for Shop-In-Shop concepts or reception areas. Our focus is designing New Ways of Working, Activity Based Workspaces and we try to keep integrating Homo Ludens – a more playful human – into our design and interior.
