I create relations between furniture and people.
I do this, by uniting innovative design and rational craftsmanship in furniture you can modify.
This allows you to refine yourself and renew your home in a contemporary manner.
In 2016, I established my own trademark by HARALD HERMANRUD, focusing on a single goal:
»I aim to set new standards for contemporary furniture.«
Achieving that goal is my dream and that is what drives me every day.
Passionate to realise this ambition, I decided to create less but more dedicated. Therefore I handle the manufacturing part in dialog with skilled craftsmen.
My ideas emerge from observations of the present. With attention to detail, these ideas are carefully developed into an entirety. In this process, I use high-quality materials in articulated structures that will persist in a contemporary life that constantly evolves and changes.
I believe that this commitment enriches the final product with an authenticity, presence and value you can relate to and enjoy for a long time. In this way, I create intimate links between furniture and people.
Bo Bedre Design Award, nominated for Upcoming Designer of the Year, 2017
Formland Best Design, winner of Creators Community Entrepreneur Award, 2017
I graduated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2015, with prior studies in Oslo, Munich and Providence RI, USA.
After additional education for cabinetmaker, I presented a prototype of HOMER SYSTEM, model H25 in beech at Finderskeepers Designmarket the 16th of April 2016. Orders and demand for other models in the collection motivated me to start up my professional design driven company.
I introduced the collection for retailers at Formland Spring, where I received the Creators Community Entrepreneur Award: BEST DESIGN.
Recently I was nominated for the highly acclaimed Bo Bedre Design Award 2017 in the category: Upcoming Designer of the Year. The winner will be elected the 7th of September 2017.
I am very proud and thankful for these recognitions.
