Description

Relatives – an experiment about context. What happens when you create a design that has no function whatsoever – is it then art? It certainly dwells in the borderland between the two. When you let go of function and mass production as starting points for the creative process, new ways of thinking about design emerge. The works are the result of a long and winding conceptual process.
Most of his products are developed using the process statement ‘Art with function – Design without’, a method developed by Fex in an attempt to push his thinking outside the box. This tool forces his thoughts along new paths and promotes a conceptual approach to the design craft. Designers love to focus on function, and the word ‘art’ often has slightly negative connotations. Fex works with a foot in each camp; the conflict between ‘art’ and ‘design’ is nonexistent.

The designer

Profile Photo
Rasmus Bækkel Fex
As a furniture designer, I take a highly conceptual approach to my work. I consider art and design as equals but positioned at opposite ends of the scale, and I systematically seek to explore and challenge genre conditions and boundaries and view furnitures as functional sculptures. I graduated my MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design in 2012 with additional studies at Konstfack in Stockholm. Besides working with self-initiated projects in my studio in Copenhagen, I design industrial produced furnitures for companies such as Frama and Brdr. Krüger. In 2014, I was the co-founder of the RE F O R M Design Biennale, a curated exhibition showcasing cutting edge design.
