“I still have my hands, my mind, and the momentum…it’s from inside that ideas are sketched, lines made smooth and shaped into the designs that drive my existence.”
We met David Rasmussen at Dwell on design, and were immediately struck by his wood plates but a slow look through his portfolio reveals an extremely adept and accomplished furniture maker with a wide range of designs. Made in Colorado and imbued with his New England roots, the furniture offers fresh designs and depth in the mixes with steel, upholstory and wool – for him it’s a mix of post-modern with mid-century styles. Unfortunately last fall a fire burned all through David’s workshop and took out his livelihood. He has since admirably been building back up product lines and raising funds – the latest a kickstarter page that will hopefully steer his business back on course – he’s even going as far as trying to re-use some of the burnt pieces in new designs.
