About Rasmus

Born 1972, lives and works in Copenhagen

Creating designs with an equal focus on sculptural and functional qualities, Rasmus Fenhann’s works are made in carefully selected natural materials, especially wood. He is considered as one of the most important Scandinavian designers today in the field of handmade art design. His working processes combine traditional, sometimes near forgotten craft techniques with advanced high-tech procedures, including computer based sketching and visualization.

Rasmus Fenhann has a double education, graduating from the Danish Royal Academy of Art and Design, Furniture Department 1997-2003, and as a Cabinetmaker 1991-1996. He has exhibited internationally, notably in Europe and in the United States, and his works are part of important private and public collections such as the permanent collection of Design Museum Danmark.

Rasmus Fenhann has received several prizes and awards such as the Danish Arts and Crafts Silver Medal 2004, the Finn Juhl Award 2016 and the H. J. Wegner Award in 2020.
