RATIO TABLE 2016. Oak, glass. 68 x 42 x 42 cm. Limited editions of 12 in various woods.

In the architectonic Ratio table, the Danish contemporary designer Rasmus Fenhann (Winner of the Finn Juhl Prize 2016) is further exploring the beauty of geometric form combined with exquisite craftsmanship.The perfect proportions are derived from the Golden Ratio and the relationship between the rectangle and the square. In Ratio, Rasmus Fenhann shows the close connection between design and architecture, underlining the fact that the difference is often mainly a question of scale.

Alone, or several combined, the Ratio table is proposing interesting shifts in scale and direction, making possible different formations and functions. The inspiration comes from Japan and the Ratio tables are created as a challenge to make the thinnest solid wood construction possible, still with a stable and strong construction.Thanks to the thin lines in Ratio, Rasmus Fenhann manages to create an exceptionally transparent structure. Like the split Cane fishing rods, the table is made out of mitred frames, glued together in 45°. This requires an extreme accuracy which can only be obtained through the combination of CNC technology and handcraft. Special Jigs are created and high skill with Japanese hand planers is needed to get a perfect finish.
