Secret Box

While a student at the Danish Design School, Fenhann created the Secret Box to practise and test his craft skills. Since ancient times, cabinetmakers have played with the idea of making secret compartments in furniture, and with this tradition in mind, Fenhann created a small jewellery box with many hidden details, including matchbox-sized drawers with dovetailed sides. The trays have diagonal lids and secret locking mechanisms, and the box has a hidden bottom.

Exhibited at “Masterpieces – 20th Century Danish Cabinetmaking”, Kronborg Castle, Elsinore, 2000; “Japanometry”, Galerie Maria Wettergren, Paris, 2015.
