The studio is located on the ground level in – Raadvad Knivfabrik, the old knife factory i Raadvad with windows facing Raadvad Pond.

Designer Henriette Melchiorsen uses design thinking and design doing to create change from a systemic to a practical level.
Working and advocating for a positive social and environmental change created by design. Doing this by bridging a systemic approach through new business models and sustainable product and concept development. Believing we must dare go into the unknown to create this new and needed future.

I am an educated industrial designer and a pragmatic idealist with a great passion for design- and innovation processes and the possibilities within these tools. I have more that 20 years of experience from practice with conventional and experimental design tasks and now focus on creating sustainability in coops with the industry and as a teacher.

I am co-founder of FairTrade Designers startet in 2007 with two other designers: Pil Bredah and Liselotte Risell. We use design as a social lever working with craftsmen setting up ethical production, for now in China, Ghana and Zimbabwe.
