Christian and Martin are two very different characters. Where Christian is calm and pensive with a critical approach to design – Martin often charges ahead with lots of ideas and temperament. These differences in skills and personality make for a strong dynamic collaboration between the two designers. The design approach of NOERGAARD-KECHAYAS is problem solving by nature and aims to offer strong visual appeal with innovative technical solutions.
NOERGAARD-KECHAYAS collaborate with new and established companies, such as: ABSTRACTA (S), HAY (DK), MUNK COLLECTIVE (DK), NEW WORKS (DK), WEHLERS (DK).
