YOLK is a family based art and design studio founded by Pernille Iben and Morten Linde. Their shared interests, professional backgrounds, love of materials, aesthetic sensibility, creative urge and curiosity is the basis for YOLK. So far, two of their three children - Amanda and Carl Otto Linde - are active members.
The starting point is the academic discipline and professional expertise of each YOLK member, ranging from product and furniture design, to visual communication, to fashion and fine art. YOLK artists are represented individually and also through collaborative cross-disciplinary work.
They produce one of each piece of art and design, i.e. each and every item is a one-off. Occasionally there are series, but never with identical expression. Some designs come in limited editions too. YOLK work in all materials and draw upon external artisans and craftsmen.
Pernille Iben and Morten have been together for the last 36 years. They live and work in the countryside. Amanda lives in Copenhagen where she in addition to her YOLK art, produces and sells jewellery through her own company - Amanda Johanne Linde. Carl Otto is currently working in Amsterdam.
