byKATO is an award-winning Danish design company dedicated to creating contemporary, highly usable products for everyday living. We aim to bridge the gap between commercial industrial design and high-quality craftsmanship, by using honest and justifiable materials and paying careful attention to even the tiniest detail”.
“What we are looking for is originality and authenticity – products with character and a history, which always stand for the kind of classic traditional craftsmanship that really takes heart and soul to achieve. Our mantra is to design products, which we ourselves would like to have. We always take starting point in our own needs. In this way it all comes from the heart and the necessary enthusiasm is always at present".
"We are very much aware of the production methods and what materials to select. Already in the design process – nothing is left to chance".
In short, byKATO’s mission is to do honest work.
byKATO was established in 2010 by Karl Rüdiger Rossell and Tonny Glismand, with the byKATO name deriving from the two founders’ names.
Karl and Tonny share a passion for designing honest, practical products that are within reach for almost anyone.
