Award-winning, self-taught Danish designer Tom Rossau started his career in the basement of his parent’s house in Denmark. LEGO was the main companion to his vivid imagination. In the 90’s, Tom picked up the thread where he’d left it some years before. He started to design and sew leather clothes and in 1997 he eventually opened a shop in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Since 2004, Tom has worked mainly with natural wood veneers. At first these lamps were only available from the old shop on Istedgade in Copenhagen, but in 2006 the TR4, TR5, TR6 and TR7 were introduced to a broader audience at Copenhagen Furniture Fair, where the TR7 received the “Audience Favorite Award”.
Although the business is expanding Tom still holds on to the core. And the core is design.
