Sakyu is a masterpiece by Rasmus Fenhann. The name is Japanese for sand dune and signals the important role of Japanese craftsmanship and culture in Fenhann’s work—including the meditative quality of taking the time to experience and observe the characteristics and tactility of materials. Reminiscent of a desert landscape, the wavy pattern is based on sine curves that are found throughout nature and creates an interplay of light and shade. The 3D pattern also provides an interesting tactile experience, and the soft curves make the pinewood seat pleasant to use. Available as a limited edition of 8, Sakyu represents a rare level of mastery of computer-generated form combined with exquisite hand craftsmanship. It is made in a limited edition of 8 pieces.
Contemporary Danish designer Rasmus Fenhann creates furniture and objects with an equal focus on sculptural and functional qualities. He lives and works in Copenhagen.
