Mathias Steen Rasmussen

The Danish designer Mathias Steen Rasmussen is passionate about working with wood

Mathias Steen Rasmussen, born in 1990, is a young Danish designer who creates furniture designs with a mature and rigorous approach. During his art studies at the Jutland Art Academy he discovered his passion for working with wood and decided instead of expressing purely aesthetic visions to create objects for a specific use. Thus Rasmussen came to furniture design, in which craftsmanship and aesthetics enter into a functional connection. He completed his training as a furniture maker in 2019 with distinction.

Planned down to the smallest detail, the MR01 from Gubi

Rasmussen's design is distinctive yet fits perfectly into the Gubi portfolio

Rasmussen's principle: Everything has to fit together

When working on his own designs Rasmussen focuses on the "sincerity of construction". This means that Rasmussen attaches great importance to transparency: construction, materials and connecting elements interlock logically and remain understandable for the user.

Thanks to his passion for durable, accessible and detail-obsessed design, Rasmussen's aesthetic perfectly complements the program of the Danish furniture manufacturer Gubi, who produces its lounge chair MR01 Initial Chair.

For Gubi Mathias Steen Rasmussen represents a generation of young designers who face the ecological challenges of the time and cultivate a conscious approach to design traditions.
