Rasmus Bækkel Fex
Danish furniture artist and designer Rasmus Bækkel Fex takes a highly conceptual approach to furniture and product design. Fex considers furniture as functional sculptures and systematically seeks to explore and challenge genres, archetypes and boundaries in an intriguing borderland between art and design, that most designers, and artists as well, usually avoid.
The collaboration with Brdr. Krüger on the F chair (2017) is born from an experimental work of art, ‘Relatives’ from 2013, where the designer combined a series of wooden chairs in different ways, from merely sculptural to more recognisable and functional objects. The work was a part of the Danish Mindcraft exhibition in Milan, and after a new winding and awarding design and crafts process in Brdr. Krüger's workshop, the shaker-inspired chair from this work have grown into a rather minimal and highly functional chair with subtle references to its origin.
