We have the utmost respect for anyone who makes anything with their bare hands, especially for those that are compelled to do so. Danish designer Tom Rossau has been making his whole life, from Lego buildings to leather garments to his amazing wood veneer lamps. Tom was kind enough to let the world have a glimpse into his process.
That process is one Tom Rossau holds close to his heart, from start to finish:
The design process is actually quite selfish to me. I may be that the end consumer gets his or her need covered by the product, but in all honesty I do for the kick that it gives me. It's quite a thrill to get an idea out of the blue, to work with it, to get caught up in it, to be totally consumed by the details from the early drawings over prototypes and on to production.
