The design duo and couple, Rikke and Kasper Salto both have a degree from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Kasper graduated as a cabinetmaker in 1988 where he received a silver medal for his test piece. In 1994, he graduated from the Danish Design School and he spent one term at the Art Center of Design in Switzerland. During 1996, he lectured at the Royal Danish Design School. From 1994 to 1998, Kasper Salto was employed at Rud Thygesen, who is one of the most influential Danish furniture designers in modern times. Since 1998, Kasper had his own design studio in Copenhagen. Kasper works together with a number of trend-setting producers within furniture and lighting such as Fritz Hansen, Lightyears, DubaB8, Engelbrechts Furniture, Stærk Design and Nemo Lighting in Italy.
Rikke Salto graduated from The Institute of Architecture and Design where she was associated with the Textiles Institute in her final years. As a part of her education, she spent a year at the Royal College of Art in London. She also received the Svend Granns memorial trust scholarship in connection with her Master's Thesis, and since then she has received several awards in various design competitions.
Rikke Salto comes from a family of architects and started designing from an early age. Rikke Salto reworks concrete objects into new, fragmented impressions, always paying respect to the original idea. From this new starting point, she adds as little as possible, nevertheless adding depth to the impression. According to Rikke Salto, it is always easy to add something. However, the real art lies in reduction - that is the big challenge. Rikke primarily works with designs consisting of textiles and colour schemes for well-known brands such as Kvadrat and Fritz Hansen.
Salto has designed LINEN dishcloths
for Georg Jensen Damask.
