David Rasmussen

David Rasmussen Design

"I am a maker. I have been making objects of art and utility since I was young. I find great pleasure and satisfaction in sharing my creations with those who will cherish and enjoy them. I find it necessary, in a world where short term thought is so prevalent, to create objects that will outlast their patrons. Every piece of furniture I create is intended to become an heirloom of a future generation."

Inspired by Pop Art, architecture, nature, and modern design, David Rasmussen creates work that is a response to modern culture. Using wood and metal, as well as cardboard, eco-resin, plastic, and cork, Rasmussen combines traditional joinery techniques with unusual materials to create contemporary heirloom quality pieces.

As an artist, Rasmussen uses simple, clean designs with elements of contrast and strives to create pieces in which the mark of the hand is evident. In Rasmussen's work, no two pieces are exactly alike and every piece expresses its hand-made nature

Raised and educated in New England, the artist was exposed to the region's rich culture of fine furniture-making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, Rasmussen learned composition and fabrication techniques. As he progressed in his career, Danish, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture were the focus of Rasmussen's studies in furniture
