Creating pieces with an equal focus on sculptural and functional qualities, Rasmus Fenhann works almost exclusively with wood, which he carefully selects for each project. His process combines traditional and sometimes near-forgotten craft techniques with advanced technology and tooling – including CAD sketching, visualisation and processing. Fenhann’s main source of inspiration is traditional Japanese woodwork and Danish cabinetmaking, with his works often incorporating personal interpretations of select aspects of these craft traditions. His work is also stimulated by nature and the mathematical properties of natural forms – universal forms unaffected by human control. Today he is considered one of the most important Scandinavian designers within the field of hand-crafted collectible design.
