About

Visually light and
constructively smart

The work of Studio Meike Harde focuses on several areas: using both an experimental-constructive ­basis and looking to apply an allegoric-conceptual approach in every project.

Common materials appear in new contexts and the unique language of shapes overcomes established forms – resulting in upholstery, lighting or other ­furniture. An industrially fabricable product incorporates handcraft techniques in its production.
