Reflecting the poetics of the process, not two can ever be the same
Reflecting the poetics of the process, the furniture series is made with individually hand
printed wood, using the elusive method of a marbling technique. Not two surfaces can ever
be the same, and therefor every piece of furniture has it
s own distinct colourful character.
Marbling technique is suspended pigment on a surface of water, before carefully transferring
it onto wood. Textile designer Pernille Snedker Hansen in troduces this technique, know from
old book covers, to the light wood of Danish ash furniture, creating vibrant patterns that are
reminiscent of the wood grain itself.
Produced locally in Denmark and close to the design origin, makes it possible to create these
unique handmade furniture objects, where variation is key in the manufacturing process.
"Never the same furniture" is made in collaboration with Karsten Lauritzen, owner of an local furniture carpentry in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark.
