Studio YOLK is a family based art and design space founded by Pernille Iben Linde and Morten Linde. Their shared interests, professional backgrounds, love of materials, aesthetic sensibility, creative urge and curiosity is the basis for studio YOLK. So far, two of their three children – Amanda and Carl Otto Linde – are active members.
The starting point is the academic discipline and professional expertise of each YOLK member, ranging from product and furniture design, to visual communication, to fashion and fine art. YOLK artists are represented individually and also through collaborative cross-disciplinary work. Pernille, Amanda and Morten are from the Royal Danish Academy of Design in Copenhagen. Carl Otto is from Gerrit Rietveld Academie, fine arts in Amsterdam. Both Pernille Iben and Morten are psychotherapists in addition to their design background.
