Leif Erik Rasmussen (1942) and Henrik Rolff (1944) both finished training as furniture designers at the Danish Design School in 1968. The two designers mainly dealt with the needs of the workplace based on ergonomic considerations. They have created many beautiful, thorough and well thought through pieces of office furniture, which today are part of many offices. In 1982 they won the Danish prize 'Møbelprisen', one of the oldest and biggest prizes within furniture design in Denmark, for their storage system Paustian Cabinet System. It was originally developed as a storage system that would complement the Alvar Aalto chairs and tables. Since then, Rasmussen & Rolff have designed several pieces of furniture for Paustian and other well known brands.
