Architect and designer Ida Linea Hildebrand was born in Stockholm in 1978.
The daughter of a cabinet maker, she continued the family tradition by choosing a path that led her to furniture design. In 2008 Ida Linea graduated from the distinguished Stockholm art academy Konstfack (the University of Arts,Crafts, and Design). She earned a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts within the field of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design. After studying, Ida Linea moved to Copenhagen – a mecca for contemporary furniture design – and there her dream of becoming an independent designer took shape. She met future husband and co-founder of Friends & Founders, Rasmus Hildebrand, and the couple established a studio in 2013.
We create contemporary design with strong focus on architecture, art and craft.
