Line Depping’s work springs from considerations of function and use. It is crucial to see a good reason to create a new piece of furniture; an opportunity to add something to an object that expands its usefulness. Her ideas for new designs often spring from observations of people and culture. The way we live. Her expression is simple, and her emphasis on function also involves making room for disorder in order to accommodate the messy and chaotic aspects of life. The form should be natural and well-proportioned and thus appeal to the user and make room for use. Line Depping has a special focus on materials. She mainly works with wood but often adds other materials to provide a counterpoint to the wood. By combining different materials she achieves a field of tension between the textural qualities of the materials.
Depping graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2007 and has since collaborated with Danish Crafts, Galerie Maria Wettergren, and Wrong for HAY.
