Amanda Betz graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in 2005 and was awarded the acclaimed VOLA-prize for her final project. Her pendant Shayk has been displayed in the MoMA store in New York and was on the cover of the MoMA Catalogue in April 2015.

Amanda Betz works in the intersection of art, design and architecture, with a special interest in light, space and the span between two and three dimensions. Her design tends to reflect architecture as fragments of buildings, and she has garnered both local and international acclaim for her ability to capture complexity in a simple object. She has a unique experimental approach and uses patterns and geometrical constructions to create spatial objects that reflect light and shadow. Recently, Amanda designed ‘folded vase’ for Menu and was selected by the Danish Arts Council to participate in the curated ‘Danish Crafts Collection CC19’, exhibited at Maison et Objet 2015.
