TANSU - bench   -   2013

Cuban Mahogany, Brazilian rosewood, Handmade Brass fittings, Nigerian Goatskin.

This unique piece is created for the entrance hall and has a mirror in the same style hangning over the cabinet. I have re-used woods from old un-restorable furniture. The wood is very precious and cannot be found comercially because of deforestation.I am interested in furniture that combines different functions and this small bench combines a sitting surface with a storage facility. The cabinet is inspired from the old Tansu chests from Japan and from the Danish furniture tradition carried by Mr. Kaare Klint.
The bench was presented at the Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition in 2013 at Design Museum Denmark.
