Carrying on from our get to know our brands at mj resident, here is the latest Q&A from Nur Design Studio.
We introduce to you the wonderfully talented Maja Bøgh Vindbjerg, designer and founder of Nur Design Studio in Denmark. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the pleasure of personally visiting the Nur Design Studio in Denmark this time, but have ear marked it for one of our future buying trips.
Q: How did NUR Design begin?
A: While studying at the School of Architecture in Denmark I established the design studio in 2013. I spent much time in the workshops where I built my first prototypes. Once I had the prototypes I exhibited at different trade fair shows which started the interest & the awareness of NUR spread out.
Q: What were you doing before and what lead you to start your own business?
A: I was studying furniture design at the School of Architecture which reinforced my interest in design and the way of creating & sculpturing. Meanwhile I always dreamed of creating my own studio and to create good designs for the people.
Q: What is your favorite piece and how to you style it in your home?
A: The Nur Tray is so functional & it has a very classic & minimalistic touch which reflects my entire way of thinking of design. Also I designed BAENK for the Danish furniture company WOUD which also has the same qualities in terms of details.
Q: What’s the most creative way you have seen a NUR Tray being used?
A: I am not sure it is the most creative way but maybe the funniest – a customer send me an image of Nur Tray being used as her cat’s feeding bowl. Well – I guess the pets also appreciate a nice tray for their dinner.
Q: Is the product inspired by anything in particular?
A: All my creations are designed to the everyday life. I usually wake up in the morning with an idea for a new design & I immediately start to sketch it.
Nur Design both has its own interior collection and also my studio designs for other well-known furniture companies.
Q: What are your favourite things to do on a weekend?
A: Spending time with my family is what I love the most. I also enjoy a hard work out & of course food.
Q: What is your favourite city and why?
A: I guess Rome is my number one city – such a romantic place, serving the best wine & food. And also the city has a wonderful architecture & history. Went there last Summer & I am for sure getting back soon.
Q: What country would you love to visit and why?
A: Next time I will be traveling to Canada because I am in love with the nature and the wildlife. I love to hike & get out in the nature & discover inner peace. Combined with the big city life. Canada has a lot to offer of both things.
Q: Whats your favourite coffee table book?
A: I am not the biggest reader and I prefer spending time on Instagram or Pinterest looking for anything like food, travels, designs, architecture and so on. I guess because I am a very visual kind of person I enjoy looking at images and to be inspired.
Q: What exciting things are coming to NUR Design?
A: New great cooperation will start in 2017 & more of my creations will see the daylight at some of the furniture brands I have worked for. This is the most exciting part - to launch new designs and to see how people embrace it.
