This year located at The Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen.
This year, the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition pitches the colour black as the thematic guide for the members’ experimental furniture. ‘Pitch Black – shadows and transparency’ is the title of the exhibition, which revolves around contrasts.
I exhibited The THIN tables which was a collaboration between me and my colleague cabinetmaker Søren Risvang. THIN is a set of nested tables was made in Rosewood with glass tops and a small handmade profile on the inside of the frames.
This chair was designed for this exhibition in dialogue with the beautiful sculptures a by Mr. Bertel Thorvaldsen at Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen. I was inspired by the geometric pattern floors at Thorvaldsen's museum and used ancient Greek mathematics to construct a lounge chair. The shell is an exact section of one of Archimedes' basic mathematical shapes (Truncated Octahedron).
