Mido was based on the realization that storage furniture made for standing on the floor is usually imagined as boxes supported by a frame underneath. In my reformed edition of a sideboard the frame surrounds the cabinet, so that it is actually hanging within the frame and by this creating a new charismatic shape. I have strived to create both contrast and coherence between the industrial aesthetic of the steel frame and the crafty details of the wood cabinet.
Materials: Ash, steel pipes and woven cane
Dimensions: 900 x 1600 x 400 mm
In order to understand the concept of REFORM I find it important to make references to the history of design and stress the quality in materials and techniques by using them in new and surprising ways.
Rasmus Warberg graduated as furniture designer from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2015. His background in crafts means that he often experiments with materials and is curious about the immediate and natural connection between shape and design on one side and construction and details on the other. His expression is characterized by serene simplicity based on an analytical relation to the archetypes of furniture.
Warberg has his own practice with main focus on product and furniture design.
