In the late 1990s, the Elm trees in Copenhagen were suddenly hit by a disease that condemned them to be cut down. Saddened by these perspectives, Fenhann engaged himself in a project trying to obtain the right to use some of the Elm trees for his furniture pieces. He succeeded and stored the wood from this unique tree, which had lived its long life in the center of Kongens Nytorv, in an attic for 10 years. When the wood had dried, he divided the slices and combined them to form a hexagonal shape. The Burl table is assembled with hidden dovetail joints made in white Hawthorn. The black slab in the middle of the table is made of Bornholm Granite, which is the same type as that used for the paving on Kongens Nytorv.
