Danish design is known all over the world for its simplicity, functionality and longevity, but most female designers from the so called ‘Golden Age of Danish design’, which spanned from the 1930’s to the 1970’s, were overlooked and forgotten. This is the story about one of the few pioneering women who insisted on creating designs that are still popular today; despite the enormous consequences it had for her. She managed as a single mother and under difficult financial conditions to work independently. Combining humanist thinking with an almost scientific methodology, she analysed her way into all her designs; working, reworking, testing. Her name was Grethe Meyer.
