Mentze Ottenstein is a collaboration between Danish architects and designers Mathias Mentze and Alexander Ottenstein. An architect and design lecturer at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Mathias Mentze infuses design, history, craft and tactility into projects large and small. Architect Alexander Ottenstein has collaborated with high-profile Danish studios but is most passionate about smaller scale projects. Working across a range of disciplines, from buildings to objects to furniture, their common approach is often contextual. Designs emerge from a specific project or occasion, for a specific place. As a result, their work often contains numerous historical references and unfamiliar narratives that come to light through their extensive research. Mentze Ottenstein have created a range of characterful products for Audo Copenhagenthat are both timeless and timely and place great materials at the centre of each design.
