With her work, the Danish designer Maria Bruun joins a long-standing design tradition. With sincere respect for classic Danish furniture, Bruun builds on this foundation with an innovative approach, creating her design in close dialogue with skilled craftspeople. She often devotes her work to the refinement of the individual elements and persistently seeks out new possibilities in her field. For her collaborative methods and approach to design, Bruun was awarded the Wegner Prize in 2022, and the prestigious Danish Finn Juhl Prize in 2021.
Along with Anne Dorthe Vester, Bruun is the co-founder of MBADV, a collaboration that, from 2013-2022 created objects in the cross-field between art, architecture and design. Maria Bruun holds a MA in furniture Design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.
