Rén balances function with form, distinguished with Nordic philosophy, incorporated in the craft techniques and the aesthetic detail from Japanese and Chinese design traditions.
Rén was born of the desire to create a series of pieces in the Danish Modern tradition – high quality, thoughtfully crafted design that balances function with form and is accessible to all.
Made from stained ash, Rén’s tables and chairs take this distinctly Nordic philosophy and incorporate craft techniques and aesthetic detail from the design traditions of Japan and China, resulting in a collection that, although inspired by a particular place and time, is both international and ageless in its scope.
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, both graduates of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, SPACE Cph is a Copenhagen-based design practice that creates interior spaces, furniture and objects for luxury and lifestyle clients across the world. Through their work – which includes restaurants such as Noma in Copenhagen – SPACE Cph has developed a design process that is both emotional and poetic, instilling architectural, interior and furniture design projects with modernism, a strong personal vision and an aversion to the mundane.
