Niki Tatstensen, the recently appointed 27-year-old head designer of Blend of America, was recently injured in a motorcycle accident. Tatstensen fractured his spine in two different places, but will make a full recovery after at least six months of recuperation. The company expects him back but is unsure of when. In the meantime, Henrik Outzen, the company’s buying manager, will be filling in for Tatstensen while continuing at his own position. Tatstensen started working for Blend in Copenhagen at the beginning of August after leaving a much bigger Danish footwear company, ECCO.
