Grethe Meyer (1918 - 2008) was an architect and designer, and one of the most recognized representatives of Danish industrial design. She graduated from the Danish School of Architecture in 1947, and started working with research and analysis of peoples space-related challenges and how it affected their behavior - and choice of furniture. Meyer worked at the Danish Building Research Institute, and in 1960, she established an independent studio.
Grethe Meyer made a great mark on Danish Design history with her aesthetic - simple, timeless, and functional designs. Her work always contained quality, personality, and respect for the user. Meyer wanted things to be simple and somewhat anonymous but still be a daily joy for those who used it. Fortunately, her work has been a great joy to audiences all around the world, and today many of her designs have become classics.
