In Denmark we are allowed to change professional direction hence a new design generation has developed.
– more than ever before people start living the dream, instead going for the usual ‘just a job’ focus!
We are so happy in Denmark – or at least that’s how we are known to most people visiting Denmark. I don’t know whether it’s really true, but from the reaction I’m getting when I tell the tourists visiting our store, about the possibilities we are given in Denmark they truly envy the Danes at large. To them we are not just happy, but lucky and rich in so many ways.
Our kids get a free education of own choice and should they reconsider during the studies or after. It’s possible to take another ‘prepaid’ education. Even later in life, it common that people makes a rather ambitious carrier change.
Between our more than 100 members we have lots of stories about huge carrier changes. Like when somebody quit the job in a law firm just to start a company making soap! Schoolteacher’s do-over, getting new educations to become furniture designers or jewelers rather late in life.
Or like Jacob from Fundi Furniture – from carpenter to rock solid furniture creator.
The story from all of them are alike – they all just took the giant and bold step risking everything.
Take the skilled and passionate owner of Fundi Furniture. I went for a visit just a few weeks back – I went to see the new workshop! First and foremost the shear size of the workshop and all the gear told a story about passionate believing in both product and skills. About being all in – playing with own money – taking the risk. Fundi Furniture was established in 2012, and Jacob never looked back since. And why should he, customers stand in line because they admire his design and craft – and in contrast to what most other furniture stores offers, here you also can visit and follow your own piece of furniture coming to life.
Attention to detail, respect for the traditional craft, new combinations in material and meticulous – are just some of the words people link to the work of Jacob Fundi.
The three pieces showcased here also show respect for the Scandinavian design heritage, and how to take a classical chair or bench into the twenty-first century. Enjoy also the combination of the classical 60’ties wooden cabinet with so much well thought detail inside the cabinet.
All Fundi furniture designs are made by order and ideas for customization is welcome.
