|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 â€“ 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.|
Rathâ€™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. Rathâ€™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. Rathâ€™s collaboration with Georg Jensen represents an exciting direction for Georg Jensenâ€“the bringing together of technology and artisan technique. The potential of this combination has not yet been fully explored.
