Established in 2013 by Rasmus & Ida Linea Hildebrand FRIENDS & FOUNDERS is a furniture collection that can exist in several contexts from indoors to outdoors, from work to home environments.

Based on the philosophy that design should allow the character of its owner to shine through, the FRIENDS & FOUNDERS collection is daring in it simplicity. Their products are designed to frame space, set a scene and emphasise the uniqueness of the personality within it. Focusing on clean silhouettes and clever use of material, their range includes upholstery, metalwork and stone.

Designed in Denmark, FRIENDS & FOUNDERS highlights a trend towards a universal style in design. Utilising local manufacturers, specialising in detailed and custom-made processes, FRIENDS & FOUNDERS has a strong focus on sustainable manufacturing methods which in turn aids the development of their innovative collection.

Relay Design Agency represent FRIENDS & FOUNDERS in the U.K. and Ireland.



Our designs are characterised by Scandinavian heritage in terms of the ambitiously high quality
level and the common idea of surrounding oneself with less, but important things.
— Ida Linea Hildebrand / Creative Director
