RAASTED

Chairs FRAMA
March 2023

Mette Moesgaard, who founded, owns and runs the Raasted shops in Ringkøbing and Århus, was among the first to give the HÅNDVÆRK bookazine the seal of approval by including it in her tasteful product range.
In 2019, this meant Raasted Ringkøbing; since 2022, it also includes Raasted Århus.

This past week, Raasted was the setting of the launch event for HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 8.

Mette runs the shops herself with help from her two adult daughters, who share her taste.

In addition to the two brick-and-mortar shops and a strong web shop, Raasted also runs an agency that represents a number of makers, including the Icelandic artisan ceramicist Bjarni Sigurdsson.
Among the Danish makers represented by Raasted, I want to highlight glassblower Alexander Kirkeby. The shop is also a good place to buy casual fashion, such as Skall Studio, or interior products, such as furniture and fabrics from Frama.
Besides, and equally interesting, Raasted carries many international brands that are rarely seen in Denmark.

I asked Mette what values characterize a Raasted product.We select our products based on honesty, quality and craftsmanship.
They are all things that we personally enjoy touching, smelling, looking at.
We don’t make our selection based on what is popular but based on what gives us a sense of calm and rooted presence in the moment.
We find inspiration around the world, including in Japan and the United States.

What would Raasted never, as in never ever, carry?That’s hard to say – what comes to mind is plastic and mass production.

Could you give a brief outline of the shop’s development over the years?I initially opened the shop in a small place in Ringkøbing in 2017, in 2018, I expanded to a bigger space, also in Ringkøbing, where we are still located today. We added the Århus location in order to invite a wider audience into our universe and to have a presence in a city that is active all year round; Ringkøbing is very much a summer town.


Mette Moesgaard som står bag Raasted i Ringkøbing og Århus var blandt de første til at blåstemple HÅNDVÆRK bookazine ved at lade det blive en del af hendes smagfulde vareudbud.
I 2019 var det i Ringkøbing, nu og siden 2022 også i Århus.

Raasted dannede i forgangne uge ramme om lancering af bookazine no. 8.

Butikkerne drives af Mette selv, godt hjulpet af hendes to voksne døtre som hun deler smagsfælleskab med.
Raasted driver foruden de to butikker og en stærk internetbutik også en agenturvirksomhed, herunder repræsenterer Raasted den islandske keramiker Bjarni Sigurdsson.

Blandt andre danske kunsthåndværkervirksomheder repræsenteret hos Raasted vil jeg fremhæve glaspuster Alexander Kirkeby, butikken er også et godt bud hvis man vil købe casual mode ala Skall Studio, eller interiørprodukter som møbler og tekstiler fra Frama..

Desuden og mindst lige så interessant forhandler Raasted en lang række internationale brands som man sjældent støder på i Danmark.


Jeg spurgte Mette hvilke værdier som kendetegner et Raasted produkt?
Varerne er udvalgt efter ærlighed, kvalitet og håndværksmæssig udførelse.
Alt er noget vi elsker at røre ved, dufte til, kigge på.
Vi går ikke efter hvad der er mest populært, men efter det som giver os følelsen af ro og tilstedeværelse.
Vi henter inspiration internationalt, bl. a. i Japan og USA


Hvad ville man aldrig som i aldrig finde i Raasted:
Det er svært at svare på – jeg har lyst til at sige plastik og masseproduktion.

Beskriv kort udviklingen i de år butikken har eksisteret.
Jeg åbnede i lille lokale i Ringkøbing i 2017, i 2018 udvidede jeg med større butik også i Ringkøbing, hvor vi stadig har til huse. Butikken i Århus kom til for at give flere mulighed for at stifte bekendtskab med vores univers, og for at have butik i en by som har lige meget aktivitet hele året. Ringkøbing er i høj grad en sommerby.
