In the next editions of danishfurniture.dk, we present selected items of furniture from this year’s edition of the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition, which is currently displayed in Copenhagen.
A hummingbird sucking nectar from a tropical flower is the subject of a piece of Danish textile printing from the 1940s. The beautiful design has inspired textile designer Camilla Skøtt to convert the printing into a wooden bench by means of the traditional craft technique intarsia which requires very high precision. Materials used are sycamore veneer, dyed veneer, birch plywood and solid maple.
To add more depth and intensity, wood burning is also used.
The bench has beed produced at cabinet maker Carl Schneider’s workshop and at special workshop Intarsia ApS.
