Known for re-editing the great names of design from 1930 to the present day, the Danish house of Gubi is offering the very first creation of the very promising talent Mathias Steen Rasmussen. Originally designed for his own home, the initial MR01 chair combines traditional craftsmanship with original ideas in a simple form that is both familiar and modern.
After completing his apprenticeship, Rasmussen had previously focused on handcrafted one-offs and limited editions.
The initial MR01 chair is the first of his designs to be developed for production. Mathias Steen Rasmussen explains, “The chair emanates from a simple construction, optimized for production and made with the intention of lasting as long as the materials themselves allow.”
