Laurids Gallée

Laurids Gallée is an Austrian designer based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. From early childhood he was exposed to creative practices, and after briefly studying anthropology, he graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015. He spent the following years learning different manufacturing techniques, as a craftsman in art and design production. In 2017 he started his own studio in Rotterdam; his work explores traditional and folkloric elements to enter modern materiality, while always considering today’s advanced manufacturing processes to create a contemporary fusion.

Inspired by marquetry techniques of the Austrian & Bavarian ‘bauernmöbel’, farmhouse furniture which he fell in love with while visiting his grandparents as a child in Austria, the new age marquetry that he creates focuses on storytelling over practical function.

Laurids explores a whole new range of materials and techniques, using ink & laser-cutting techniques to dispose of colours on wood, including cedar and beech.
