Kathrine Barbro Bendixen (b. 1991, Denmark) received her bachelor degree from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. She is now working as an established designer in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she puts focus on the material. The idea of using natural materials, with a focus on sustainability, has become a passion of hers. Her experiments inspire her to create new forms and to develop new processes. The material signifies the personality and the story of the product, and her relation to it. She works within the space between art and design and often uses artistic forms to create a functional design.

There is a new context for everything

The “Inside Out” collection is different lamps made out of intestines from either pig or cow. 

The idea of using natural materials with a focus on sustainability, has become a passion for Kathrine, signifying the personality and the story of the product, and her relation to it. Interested in making use of the unused, she found a ”second life” for these unloved innards. The product is a recreation of the notion of intestines curled together, bound up by twirled intestines or the flat string version of the cows stomach. Kathrine shows the intestines with a light source, to exaggerate the details of the material and to create an x-ray vision - a look into the stomach of the cow. The aesthetic result is a significant contrast to the tabooed subject of an intestine, to many an often repulsive notion.
