The Stilleben design-DNA is simple, feminine and contemporary. The Danish design duo mainly focuses on the expression; shapes, material, glazes and colours. The function is important but not a leading role in the design.

“We are inspired by art, craft, architecture and travelling to other large cities. Our latest visit to Tokyo was a big inspiration – both regarding the culture in general, but specifically their tradition for distinct, simple and highly skilled craftsmanship.”

– Ditte Reckweg & Jelena Schou Nordentoft

The two designers behind Stilleben Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft are both educated from The Danish Design Academy- Ceramics and Glass in 2002.
