Roon & Rahn

Roon & Rahn is an Aarhus based design team consisting of Nicki van Roon and René Hansen. With functionality as a focus and an eye for manufacturability, the two designers utilize their complementing competencies within Industrial and Graphic Design. This results in conceptual design solutions intended for the consumer.

Roon & Rahn has existed since April 2014. They started designing and building furniture for their own apartment when the two friends moved in together in Aarhus in January 2014.

A lot of their solutions are a product of the challenges they face in their apartment. The Open Workshops at Godsbanen in Aarhus is the setting where their prototypes and smaller series of furniture are manufactured. The prototypes are made out of recycled materials, often old tables or residual wood. All of the products from Roon & Rahn are designed and manufactured in Denmark.

Since Roon & Rahn’s start-up in April 2014, the design team has won the ILVA Design competition 2014 for their Rank dinner table and been shortlisted for the 2014 Danish Entrepreneurship Award for their Moodboard.
