    Witthöft & LaTourelle speak about their interdisciplinary practice.

    Witthöft & LaTourelle is a project-based collaboration between Danish designer Louise Witthöft and Canadian artist Rodney LaTourelle. Working in Berlin since 2007, they create installations, public art, architectural interventions and exhibition design for galleries and museums. Louise Witthöft studied Spatial and Furniture Design at the Danish Design School, Copenhagen, Denmark. Rodney LaTourelle holds a Master of Landscape Architecture, and Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba, Canada.

    Witthöft & LaTourelle’s interdisciplinary approach integrates material, light, space, and user experience, with a strong emphasis on the materialization of color. Characterized by chromatic immersion, accessibility, and sensuality, their work utilizes color and pattern to transform spatial systems and conventional building materials, creating environmental experiences for viewers. Additionally, they actively explore collective spatial history through psychosomatic experience, often repurposing display strategies typically allocated to infrastructure into expressive experiential probes. Their re-contextualizing, site-based practice is currently focused on expanded material exploration in the context of diverse spatial memory, recycling and circular, climate-friendly processes. Witthöft & LaTourelle have exhibited and practiced internationally. They have created exhibition designs for institutions such as the Bauhaus Archiv, O32C Project Space, Berlin and Heart Museum, Denmark. Their artwork is represented in the collections of The National Gallery of Canada, Remai Modern, Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg.
