|Klaus Rath was born in 1964 and graduated in industrial design from the School of Architecture in Aarhus in 1990. From 1990 to1996 he designed for Modulex A/S in Billund – part of the Lego group. In 1997 he started Klaus Rath Design and has since worked for Siemens, Motorola, Modulex and GN Netcom to mention just a few. In 2001 and 2002 he received the IF design award.|
Rath’s designs are perhaps more technical than some of his contemporaries. He seamlessly fuses technology with craftsmanship in a way that is truly of the moment. More than ever, the line between function and form is blurred and people expect quality design in all aspects of their lives. Rath’s contributions then are particularly important in this day and age.
For Georg Jensen, he has introduced a series of key rings that are meticulously crafted so as to make them reliable, strong and technically dynamic but also beautiful to look at and to touch. Rath’s collaboration with Georg Jensen represents an exciting direction for Georg Jensen–the bringing together of technology and artisan technique. The potential of this combination has not yet been fully explored.
