Friis & Moltke
FRIIS & MOLTKE represents both a modern experiment with an international outlook and regional Nordic architecture. This duality creates a fruitful resilience of which we are very conscious. We like to take our inspiration where we find it, to play and to imbibe our architecture and design with artistic qualities. Our work has won us international recognition, but first and foremost we are designers with our feet firmly on the ground. Our style is understandable and plausible. Dedication and joy of work are values that are deeply rooted in our company’s traditions and in our desire to renew Danish architecture and design in light of these traditions and with originality, beauty and functionality.
FRIIS & MOLTKE was founded in 1954 by Knud Friis and Elmar Moltke. Today, FRIIS & MOLTKE is a limited company with 55 employees and is owned by the five partners. Mikkel Bahr joined as head of Friis & Moltke Design in 2009 with experience from several renowned Danish architectural offices and works together with Architect Kasper Mose. Ove Rix, the former head of FRIIS & MOLTKE Design for decades and continues to inspire us with his presence from time to time.
