The work of the collaborative artist and design practice, Wednesday Architecture, balances between a narrative and sculptural storytelling combined with a fascination of materials; their properties and attributes. The founders Sofie Trier Mørk and Lise Bjerre Schmidt are both trained architects from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation in 2008/09. In 2013 they started collaborating under the name Wednesday Architecture and have received a number of scholarships, honours and prizes for their work within the fields of fine art, furniture and object design.
Today, they work from their studio in Copenhagen - A laboratory for experiments and development, aiming to challenge conventions and to pull their designs along unexpected paths.
Their work and art installations take on a playful but exclusive approach. Traditional manufacturing methods and building traditions play a major part in their work along with a strong fascination of true colours and dye technics.
The wood-workshop is the core of their creative process. They develop all their pieces directly in physical models and mock-ups, which impact greatly on the result, embedding attributes of the materials in choice, in the composition of the works.
