Design by Witt is a Danish design company based in the heart of Copenhagen. “Happy by Nature” is one of the core values for the young company founded by the creative talent Martin Witt. At Design by Witt we are passionate about wooden creations. We combine beautiful Danish design traditions, with a refreshing and positive twist.
Martin Witt grew up playing in his fathers workshop in the Northern parts of Zealand. His inspiration originates from the beautiful surroundings bordering the woods of Gribskov. Witt has always been fascinated by the nature, which has also been a straightforward inspiration for his works and designs.
It was in the fathers workshop the idea for Design by Witt was manifested and established. Here Witt originally started to craft his designs. The workshop is still used for developing new designs, as well as making special editions. In this workshop, surrounded by pieces of wood, sawdust, the smell of wood and all kinds of utensils and tools, the different designs and ideas come to life on the work bench. At first as funny and quirky characters. Then slowly adapted, refined and adjusted until the design feels just right.
Design by Witt gives back to nature. The company is proud and happy to sponsor World Wildlife Fund (WWF). With each purchase of any product from the Tokens of Happiness collection, a small donation will be made to WWF for the conservation and preservation of marine life.
