Mads Sætter-Lassen belongs to a new generation of Danish designers. A graduate of the prestigious School of Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Sætter-Lassen also studied at Rhode Island School of Design and the Pratt Institute in New York. Having completed a range of studies within different fields of design, Sætter-Lassen has a uniquely cross-disciplinary approach that fuses elements of interior design with principles of cabinet-making, metalware and ergonomics. An advocate of democratic design, Sætter-Lassen focuses on simplicity and functionality, preferring to showcase the beauty and integrity of materials rather than embellish products unnecessarily. Buddy is a striking reflection of Sætter-Lassen’s approach, and his first product for Northern Lighting.
