Hyomen  - Bench  -  2017

Concrete and Oak wood

‘Hyōmen’ is the Japanese word for surface. When I worked in cabinetmaking workshops in Japan, the word was often used in discussions about the tactile and visual qualities of a surface. The Hyōmen bench offers a tactile experience. Using a CNC-cutter, tiny tactile cavities have been milled into a thick oak plank. The legs are made of concrete with a smooth surface. All the materials will change in appearance as they patinate in the outdoor environment.

The project was supported by The Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Project Funding for Craft and Design and The Danish Art Worksops
