Mette Mosegaard is joining the FÓLK team at its newly established Copenhagen office as Director of Product Design and Development. Mette is an industrial designer from the Aarhus School of Architecture with two decades of extensive experience from various roles in the Danish design industry. Her last role before joining FÓLK was as Design Manager at Fritz Hansen, where she for 7 years played a key role in launching its accessories collection, working closely with renowned designers, developing it into a strong and prosperous business unit. Before that she worked as product developer for Christmas items across all brands at Rosendahl. Other experience includes design management for companies such as Sørensen Leather, Dansani and Pelikan Copenhagen.
Important step to challenge the established mindset
Hiring Mette is an important step in FÓLKs plans to grow its sales internationally. The company is preparing a launch of new sustainably focused designs at Stockholm Furniture Fair in February.
„I see participating in building designs that drive the green transition with FÓLK as a natural next step in my career. It is obvious that the design industry can make a huge impact by rethinking its design and development process, challenging the established mindset of how commercial products are made“, says Mette Mosegaard.
„We are very happy to get a professional such as Mette Mosegaard to our FÓLK team. She has an extensive experience in product design and development, working with renowned designers and producers. It is great to feel such an experienced professional connecting strongly to FÓLKs vision that design can be a vital driving force behind the green transition”, says Ragna Sara Jónsdóttir, founder of FÓLK Reykjavík.
FÓLK is adding more people to its team, and currently has a position open for Export Area Sales Manager to drive its international sales efforts based in Copenhagen.
