Katrine Binné knows what she likes. The Copenhagen-based designer, founder of the eponymous womenswear brand Binné and the recently launched childrenswear brand Cosmo 1996, leans towards decorative textiles, family heirlooms and Danish design. But across clothing and interior design, everything she chooses needs to work hard for her — whether it’s a timeless garment she can wear again and again, or a piece of furniture that can be passed on or traded for a new one. It’s a long-established approach to sustainability, and one which is modern, pragmatic, and highly effective.
Katrine lives in a former factory with her husband, Jonas, and their two children — three-year-old Hubert and eight-month-old Teddy. They’ve made a few changes to it since they moved in, and now it’s a space for light, comfort and ease — full of her favorite things, and her boys’ books and toys. All of which is inspiring her creative ventures.
