DESIGN LETTERS & Friends is a Danish design company founded by former copy writer and journalist Mette Thomsen. Mette has always been a great fan of words and writing and in 2009 she merged it with her passion for design by establishing DESIGN LETTERS. In 2009 there were no fashionable letters in the interiors world. Only multicolored letters for kids’ wall decoration. Why not change this, she asked herself, and felt the idea was so good that she decided to quit her job at the danish interior magazine Bolig Magasinet and founded DESIGN LETTERS by launching a radically different series of monochrome letters. Later the company’s collection expanded to include Arne Jacobsen’s hand-drawn typography from 1937. The rest is a history. Today DESIGN LETTERS & Friends carries a significant collection within Living, Stationery, Furniture and Kids designs – with and without letters. The brand is represented in more than 1000 design-led shops in 55 countries.
