Sifted recently featured an Artist Spotlight article about David Rasmussen Design, and we loved it so much that we are sharing it with you here:
ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: DAVID RASMUSSEN DESIGNS
New year, new artist! Ever since we launched Sifted, David Rasmussen Designs has been one of our most popular artists so it was a no-brainer to pick him for the January Artist Spotlight. We love the unique design of his wood pieces accented with bright pops of color. Every time we bring out our charcuterie board at a dinner party, someone asks where they can get one! Read below to learn a little bit about David and then check out his collection under the Makers page. And make sure to keep coming back! We'll be adding more designs soon. Happy sifting...
Raised and educated in New England, David was exposed to the Northeast’s rich culture of fine furniture making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, David learned about composition and construction techniques. Danish, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture where the focus of David’s studies in furniture as he progressed in his career.
Always “driven by artistic design and aesthetic value,” David’s avant-garde approach to developing his style included joining Vermont-based Forever Young Treehouses where he traveled as the lead carpenter on handicap-accessible projects so “anyone can climb a tree and take a walk in the woods” in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building treehouses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees.
Currently, David is working with his highly trained craftsmen to produce elegant furinture for clients all over the US. David’s recent work focuses on what he thinks is relevant and thought provoking within the realm of modern culture.
