Sarah Müllertz, founder and designer of Danish Jewelry brand, Kinraden, has a Masters degree from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and has worked with jewelry projects several times during her career. She is a former Partner and Global Head of interior, productand graphic design at the international architect firm Henning Larsen.
In her jewelry design, Sarah works in a cross-field between architecture, design and art. She is
inspired by Japanese design tradition, avant-garde art and fashion, as well as classic Danish
architecture and furniture design.
Her aesthetic expression is clear and explorative, but grows
from more traditional themes such as in her signature diamond cut series. She plays with
materials, curiously combining the obvious with the unexpected to create timeless new pieces.
She is also driven by her passion for sustainable living – a world of gentle interactions between
people and nature.
“I believe that design must have a justification. In its expression, quality, or the way it is
produced. And that it must always spring from necessity, the need for function and
examination of the world.”
KINRADEN is the old 13th century English form of the word “kindred” – to be related by blood.
The name also encompasses the concept of oneness. What we do and how we each live will
have a profound effect on the lives of others. Knowing that everything we touch inevitably
touched the lives of others, KINRADEN was born as a project of passion for outstanding design
and style based on sustainable and respectful interactions. Our materials are sourced with
careful respect for both people and nature and certified to strict sustainability standards
