Fundi Carpentery was established in 2012 by carpenter Jacob Winther.
Why did you choose to start Fundi furniture?
Maybe I’m a little old-fashioned. I like working with my hands and my creativity. To follow my products from concept to completion. I do not compromise on the quality on what I provide. As a master in my own house I live out my ambition to achieve the perfect solution every time, and give every piece of wood I work with maximum attention. And so was my grandfather, whom I have always looked up to as a carpenter. The profession is passed down causing it to provide even more sense to me.
Where do you find inspiration for your furniture?
From where I get my inspiration? Well … my big furniture idols are Danish designers such as Hans J. Wegner and Finn Juhl. Their designs are loved all over the world and still stand to this day, because they managed to get the functionality and beauty to meet at a higher level. But inspiration can come from anywhere in the world around me. Traditionally, the ideas also from the directions given by my customers.
Why work with wood?
I’m a fan of wood. It’s great to work with such a living material – and it requires both knowledge and care to select the right piece of wood for each piece of furniture. The furniture I make is supposed to bring joy to the buyer for many years – perhaps even be passed down from generation to generation. Therefore, the materials’ quality and durability are essential.
Have customers something to say?
Yes! My customers are my best partners. The vast majority of furniture from Fundi is actually done in close cooperation with the customer. It makes no sense to work in the dark to make furniture that nobody wants to own. The best moment for me is when I deliver a piece of furniture that makes the customer really happy. It is this joy that makes me continue.
When you invest in a piece of furniture from Fundi, you get a piece of handmade designs that have received my dedicated attention from sketch to final oil strokes.
