about

OLDER is a Danish/Italian design company specialised in sustainable uniforms and forward-thinking design, founded in Paris in 2013 by Letizia Caramia & Morten Thuesen. The duo met whilst working at Alexander McQueen in London and lives and works as a couple both privately and professionally.

The company operates from its newly opened design studio in Via Castel Morrone in Milan along with commercial offices both in Copenhagen and Paris.

Since the very beginning OLDER has had a focus on expanding corporate, private and public spaces with its uniforms. Using uniforms as movable architecture has been well received by various industries and is widely acclaimed for its design and quality.

Today the studio works with many of the world’s leading architecture, design and gastronomy institutions such as Tate Modern, Palais De Tokyo, Chateau Marmont, Renzo Piano’s The Shard, Olafur Eliasson’s Fjordenhus, Danish Architecture Centre and many others.

All pieces are designed by merging innovation and functionality with a responsible and sustainable production and supply chain. All pieces are made in Europe.

As an extension to this, OLDER is launching a collection of petite architecture; furniture, sculptures and tablewear inspired by the uniform universe with selected pieces represented by Nilufar Gallery in Milan.

Triennale Milano; The new Milanese

OLDER was invited to present it’s design practice, supply chain and sustainable production at the Triennale Milano in a conversation with Valentina Ciuffi, founder of Studio Vedet.
The presentation also touched sustainable uniform design as an architectural extension, ideas behind hollistic design processes and how the studio converted it’s entire production to aid during phase 1. and 2. of COVID-19 to produce face masks.

georg jensen damask

OLDER was invited to be a part of the long tradition of historical collaborations between pioneer architects and designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Nanna Ditzel and the heritage Danish bedlinen company Georg Jensen Damask. OLDER joined a club of artists, architects and designers who’s influence shaped Scandinavian modern.
The OLDER x Georg Jensen Damask collection took its inspiration from the pyjamas stripe, and introduced a uniformation of the bedlinen giving the bedroom an exclusive feeling.
