Karin Schou Andersen

Karin Schou Andersen (1953- ) is a Danish industrial designer. She graduated from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, and after working for several other firms, she started KSA Design in 1993.

Her areas of expertise include both industrial design and development, packaging design, tool design, printing, and graphics. She considers her strength to be combining vision and holistic thinking with simple, efficient product development.

She has done considerable study in the fields of ergonomics, with particular regard to the needs of people who have impaired function in their hands and arms after traffic accidents, sports injuries, and as a result of arthritis, multiple sclerosis or similar conditions.

She is also concerned with the way urban outdoor space is used, with sustainability a fundamental aspect of her work in that area.

Andersen's best known design is a series of flatware designed in 1979. Its modern design is based on serious ergonomic studies. This work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Design Museum Jerusalem, and Design Museum Denmark.
