"A homage to the Danish poet Dan Turell"

DanT - Cabinet

Fenhann made the DanT cabinet as a tribute to the Danish poet Dan Turèll, using his intuitive impressions of the poet after reading his books and biographies. Drawing on his profound knowledge of ancient marquetry inlay, Fenhann echoes the sharp attitude of the Danish writer through the precise black contour of the cabinet, while its light-coloured interior was inspired by the pages of a book, including Turèll’s characteristic handwriting blown up and cut out as inlay. The cabinet contains different boxes for books, a minibar, a drawer for the writer’s nail polish and hash pipe, and a CD player with loudspeakers. The ornaments are images from the book covers.
