In 1933, cabinetmaker Thorvald Rasmussen founded Skovby. With professional pride, strenuous effort and vision, he lay the foundation for functional and sustainable furniture design. His will was carried on by his son, Villy Rasmussen and grandsons, Preben and Jørgen Rasmussen.
In less than 20 years, Skovby went from being based in a one-man workshop to having its furniture created in product lines. Eventually, they steered their company towards international dealership. With an unending focus on craftsmanship, sustainable business model and natural materials, a healthy organic growth was achieved. What spurred the three generations of Rasmussens on is optimizing function. With its innovative extension systems for tables, it is unsurprising that Skovby has developed a reputation for combining functionality and design.
Today, Thorvald’s grandsons run a successful international, high-technology business with a positive environmental imprint.
