• (a.o.t.) is a conceptual design enterprise based in Copenhagen. With an insatiable curiosity we strive to prioritize contemporary relevance and the stories that need to be told within the things we output – from collections to one-off pieces. We spawn things that do not hide within their own utilitarianism and we intend for them to be more than temporary supernumeraries in our lives — to challenge our perception of the things themselves.

    Equally fascinated and frustrated by the history of making and producing, we seek to learn, unlearn, rethink and challenge the conventional ways of doing. This is why our process of making always starts with what our own hands can do. Reconfiguring the default way of thinking things down to hand-made processes and then potentially making them fit into a larger scale production if the demand requires it. This is conventionally the wrong way around which is the ideal foundation for breaking with conventions.

    We insist on our production being in Denmark (unless conceptual thought dictates otherwise), for environmental, geo-political, economical and socio-relational reasons. Our relation with our producers and parterns is essential to make this ideology possible adn to ensure our versatility to a forever changing contemporaneity.
