Studio Gemakker creates surface design for inspiring and fulfilling interior spaces! The work ranges from self initiated experimental projects to commissioned work. The focus is always to create an original and outstanding surface experience by combining pattern, material, colour and tactility in a manner that emphasizes the story of the surronding space.

Studio Gemakker was set up by danish designer Maria Kirk Mikkelsen in 2014 and is situated in the heart of Denmark surrounded by lakes and woods and beatiful people. Depending on the project Studio Gemakker teams up with other designers, architects or craftsmen to achive the best result.

At Studio Gemakker we treat each other as well as the projects with care and enthusiasm, and we believe that the love and devotion in the design proces will be reflected in the aesthetics of the outcome.

In the past Studio Gemakker has done work for or collaborated with Odense Municipality, Ceramic designer Jacob Skov, Skanderborg Municipality, Ceramic designer Vinni Frederiksen, Daycare Fugldal, Textile designer Helle Gråbæk, Århus Minicipality, Pluskontoret Arkitekter, Covo, Scandie, Leo Brunett, Arla among others.
