Jørgen Rasmussen was born in Odense on April 26, 1931. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1955 and in 1957, Jørgen and his twin brother, Ib, started their own studio with a focus on single-family houses.
In 1958, Jørgen Rasmussen and his brother began working for KEVI A/S. The twins designed a villa for Kevi’s CEO, Bent Harlang. The chemistry between them was good and they were asked to design chairs for the company. Primarily Jørgen took on this assignment and designed Kevi, which by the 1960s had become a multi-purpose work chair for both the office and home.
"Some chairs are too technical, but with Kevi we have tried to keep it simple to secure a durable and comfortable chair", Jørgen Rasmussen.
