SAKYU 砂丘 - Bench

Sakyu 砂丘 is Japanese for ‘sand dune’. The title reflects Fenhann’s fascination with Japanese craftsmanship and culture, including the meditative quality of taking the time to experience and observe the characteristics and tactility of a material. The pattern of the sculptural Sakyu bench creates an interesting interplay of light and shade and it is reminiscent of the lines made by the waves on a sandy beach or by the wind, sweeping the large sand dunes in the Sahara Desert. The three-dimensional pattern also provides an interesting tactile experience, and the soft curves make the pinewood seat pleasant to use. Fenhann created this wavy, three-dimensional pattern based on mathematical sine curves, using digital tools and a CNC milling machine and subsequently hand-finishing the work using Japanese planers and profiled scrapers. The legs are made of two wedge-shaped pieces of Oregon pine with sliding dovetail joints in European walnut.

The first bench was made at The Danish Art Workshops in Copenhagen and supported by the Danish Art Foundation.
