ARCHITECTMADE: Celebrating timeless products that last

Built to last. Born to be passed on. ARCHITECTMADE is more than a collection. It’s a philosophy. They search archives and drawings of the most acclaimed architects of all time and discover talented architects to create timeless icons that can be passed on for generations. With excellent craftsmanship alongside three rounds of quality control, they are made to stand the test of time.

Celebrating timeless products that last

ARCHITECTMADE believes in moving away from a throw away culture and celebrating timeless products that last. For example, BIRD was designed in 1959 by Kristen Vedel, but it’s still one of the company’s best sellers. Some people say that it’s the essence of Danish design. They select manufactures as close to the raw material as possible. This guarantees the quality of the materials, reduces transportation mileage, and provides opportunities for local communities. Certifications are good for some, but at ARCHITECTMADE they go the extra mile. They visit the manufacturing sites and workshops themselves, checking that all employees are treated fairly, and the materials are sourced sustainably. They strive to minimize the impact they set on the environment, by overseeing every step of the process from production to distribution. ARCHITECTMADE donates to Eden Reforestation Projects to make sure that they, as a company, are actively making an effort to create a change in the world by replanting trees, creating jobs and protecting various local communities against natural disasters.
