Book release

17. January 2020 Book release

You can almost smell the wood and hear the sound of the wood shavings swirling around the workshop in the brand new book ‘Rodfæstet – Møbelhåndværk fra Rud. Rasmussen’s Snedkerier’. The book will be launched Friday, January 17th, from 3 PM to 6 PM here at Kløvermarksvej, and on the occasion you are invited to reception.

Design writer Thomas Dickson and master cabinetmaker Jørgen Rasmussen gives a warn portrait of the furniture company which operated for 142 years at the same address.

The desire to document an important chapter in the Danish furniture cabinetmaker history originally started the book project, well backed by lots of pictures taken by photographer Kim Ahm at the workshop at Nørrebrogade.

Rud. Rasmussen’s Snedkerier in particular produced furniture by Kaare Klint and Mogens Koch. In addition, the workshop was responsible for a number of specialized interior projects and tasks for companies and individuals, in Denmark and abroad.

The quality craftsmanship that characterized the company was created in close collaboration with the best architects, cabinetmakers, apprentices, seamstress and upholsters. Quality and carefullness are put under pressure these days. The book tells the story about a company that insisted on being a workshop and not industry.

We serve a glass of wine and offer a special price on the book of DKK 200 (normal price DKK 300) on the occasion.

The 136 pages-book is richly illustrated.
