USMEUS is a Danish design brand by designer Lene Schødt.
Even though USMEUS offer an assortment of singular designs, they all share a common DNA. Our aim is for our design to make everyday life better and people happier. More specifically, we want our products to stand out from similar products already existing on the market.
We love long lasting design! That is to say, designs you would be a proud owner of for years. However, we cannot restrain ourselves from spicing it up and create a twist that makes room for the innovative, quirky or distinctive.
To us, designs develop from a deficiency or need. Following this line of thought, our designs often contain features that have a very practical and unpretentious function.
USMEUS is Circular Danish Design with thought – for the lasting joy of you and our descendants!
Welcome to UsMeUs – best regards, Lene Schødt 🙂
USMEUS design declaration
Through innovation of function, form and material composition, designs from USMEUS aim to make your days happier, our surroundings greener and our world better. From practical, aesthetic, circular principles and thinking, USMEUS create distinctive and useful classics with a twist.
We select and make use of longlasting and reuseable materials that can be easily taken apart and upcycled separately, in order to achieve the same or higher utility value. Recycled and surplus materials are included where feasable and appropriate. Selected sustainable designs by USMEUS support local, national and international organisations and thereby also incorporate social responsibility.
USMEUS: Circular Danish Design with thought – for the lasting joy of you and our descendants
Every design fulfills one or more of the folllowing sustainable principles:
- Use of materials that can last for a very long time – maybe even several generations (such as leather).
- Use of materials that can be reused and upcycled to a considerable degree, i.e. the possibility of the product becoming a new product with the same or even higher utility value, when recycled.
- Use of recycled or surplus materials, i.e. sustainable use of the ressources we already have.
- Composition of materials in designs in ways which they can easily be taken apart and reused separately.
- Social sustainability – supporting organisations to help locally, nationally and internationally.
