THIN TABLE 2016. Maple, glass. 35 x 35 x 35 cm. Limited editions of 12 in various woods.

This set of nested tables, were the beginning of my quest for ultra thin dimensions in solidwood. The idea of the tables began with my collaboration with Cabinetmaker Soren Risvang. I worked wih him on a very acurate CNC milling maschine and tried to finetune it like a japanese handplaner. We challenged the limit of how thin and delicate we could make a construction in solid wood. The tables are made of six frames with mitred corners. The rounded inside corners strengthens a weak part of the construction and distributes the forces evenly.

The minimal size of the structure and the glass top gives a lightness and transparency. The nesting of the three tables repeats the shape and enhances their sculptural character.

The first set of tables were developed for the Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition 2016, in Copenhagen. They were made in solid Brazilian Rosewood, salvaged from an old cabinet.

The second version of the tables were made for the Danish Cabinetmakers Associations 25 years Aniversary exhibition at Designmuseum Denmark in 2017. They are made in solid white Maple as a limited edition.
