ViSSEVASSE is a Copenhagen-based design and paper studio with a passion for graphic products. Products you can flip through, look at, write on. The brand is the creation of Dorthe Mathiesen and Karsten Noel Poulsen, who for the past 20 years have worked at the intersection of fashion, stage design and graphic design.
What does ViSSEVASSE mean? So, what does ’vissevasse’ actually mean? It is Danish for ’fiddlesticks’, which the dictionary defines as nonsense, poppycock, balderdash. We lean more towards the use of ’vissevasse’ as a verbal shrug intended to say ‘don’t worry – it’ll all work out’. Because it always does.
