RYE is a design brand creating bedroom furniture that encourages people to rest. Inspired by analog thinking, their work is a response to the high pace of modern society, affecting existence through absence and distraction. They consider the late hours a recourse – a time to contemplate and to find quiet in the presence.
Since its launch in 2016, RYE has been driven by a thoughtful approach to design. With an emphasis on aesthetic traditions, they are less concerned about questions of what a bed can do, than what it should be; a quiet refuge, anchoring the senses through sculptural geometries and tactile depth.
Drawing on the insights of sustainable thinking, RYE has established its own production facilities in the Danish Lake Highlands. Searching for local embeddedness that offers a more conscious form of creating, they approach the art of making with a mind obliged to the shared heritage of our nature. It’s a humble praxis, materialized in timeless quality and a made-to-order philosophy.
RYE is anchored in the soil of the lake highland district of Jutland, Denmark. In the rural station-town of Ry, the brand grew out of a family tradition of furniture making, and has continued the heritage of the craft, developing the production facilities of their time-honored factory halls from 1981.
