Line Depping, born in 1978, is a Danish designer, who graduated from the Design School of Denmark in 2007. Recognized as an important pioneer of the new Nordic design scene, Line Depping has been awarded with several prizes, such as the Danish Art Foundation Prize in 2010 and 2013, and the II Vico Magistretti 1st Prize by DePadova and Designboom in 2007.
Line Depping’s practice moves between art works displayed in exhibitions, where the irrational and abstract are free to unfold, and the furniture field, where focus is primarily making ends in function, material, shape and production meet. In both her limited editions and commercial works, Line Depping thrives to find an interesting, insisting form that invites the viewer or user to continue to look at and explore further the object. To her, the aesthetic, perceptive and irrational is just as valuable as the rational.
With a penchant for wood and the processing possibilities that lie within, she continues to explore the qualities of steam bent or solid wood. The material provides a perfect base for Line Depping’s works and she finds excitement in simplicity and cutting to the core, whether in her limited editions, one-offs or commercial furniture for, among others, Skagerak and HAY. She shares some of her industrial endeavours with designer Jakob Jørgensen with whom she received the prestigious Finn Juhl Architecture Prize in 2015 and a 3-year working grant from the Danish Arts Council. Line Depping has exhibited internationally for more than ten years, in places such as the 21st Century Museum Kanazawa in Japan, Design Museum Danmark, The Milan Design Fair, and London Design Week.
