Meet the designer

NORDIC FOX There is something about nature that is very appealing to the folks in the Nordics. Danish Helene and Sandra are not exceptions, and they have combined the love of nature with another Nordic obsession - wood.

Tell us about your background! We are Helene Bech and Sandra Myrtue and we both have a background from the Academy of art in Copenhagen doing architecture and graphic design.

We imagine our products as a creative alternative to the classic hostess bouquet or mother’s day present – or just a way for all us design-loving people to decorate our homes in a new way.

What’s the story behind your brand? Nordic Fox is a Danish design company specialized in laser cut arts and crafts inspired by Nordic nature. It all started with the frustration of keeping regular flowers alive and the desire to display some beautiful vases. The idea of making wooden flowers came to us when we were working together at a laser cutting company. This way we could get some nature in to our homes without having to worry about watering flowers again.

What you see in our products, is our passion for design as well as nature. Everything is produced in Denmark.

What inspires you to create? Our wooden flowers are all inspired by wild growing plants from Scandinavia – we got everything from dandelions to cherry blossoms as well as a line of spring flowers and Christmas ornaments.

What are your plans and dreams for the future? We are constantly working on new products, so keep an eye out for us…
