In 2012 she established Studio Fintfolk.
This is a design studio that focuses on critical issues as freedom, identity, fashion conventions, rituals, consumption, materials and product.

The studio got its name and philosophy from Marthe's master project "Fintfolk". A conceptual fashion project about design in relation to people and their individual wardrobes - in a life perspective.

The project was based on research from eccentric people and their curiosity, creative thinking, eccentric expressions and behavior.

In the master project she redefined the terms and the concept of a fashion collection. Instead of making a range of outfits designed for a season, she presented a conceptual wardrobe containing a series of garments related to a person, in a life perspective.

Her role as a designer in this case, was to create relation between textile and user, and to raise the values of the wardrobe by both; adding new designs to it and redesign or transform the existing garments into something new. Read Less
