Furniture Objects – An exhibition worth your visit

Kongens_Have_Copenhagen

Denmark is just about surrounded by ocean, which have formed us through history, generations and handed us pure heritage. To some Danes the sea is about fishing, to others it’s about wind energy and oil – but to most of us it’s about leisure time and sweet memories.

To Per Schandorff the sea is about wooden shipwrecks or wood in general that has survived for decades beneath the surface.

A few years back Per decided to skip the daily routines for a future as artist, designer and storyteller.

The contemporary International interpretation of 2017 is dwelling on zero waste, minimalism and a signal about that things needs to change. Sustainability have long court the attention of this artist but the interpretation is so different from artist to artist.

Per is situated somewhere between the artist and the designer. Utilizing the aging wood with nature’s distinct imprint and limitation as backbone in a range of artistically handcrafted  furniture piece.

Not one piece come without craftsmanship or storytelling and not two pieces here are alike.

Since the organic lifestyle in general is aiming even more towards a conscious living this proud exhibition is spot on.

Having said exhibition, one must emphasise that all the beautiful furniture pieces exhibited here are for sale.

The exhibition is situated in the town centre next to the beautiful Kings Garden. Although a small demonstration it comes highly recommended by us at CPHmade.

So if you would like some diversity to shopping streets and the little mermaid, drop by Per Schandorff and enjoy the display as well as a nice talk with the artist about nature, charisma, emotions and aesthetics or perhaps even about the political aspect in every furniture piece.

SS 2015 pencil trend

pencil design 2015
Something is going on in pencils in 2015 – it seams like a new focus is surfaced – We risk our reputation and point to a new contemporary trend in the furniture / living segment.
We are fund of new ideas, but even more curious when a designer integrate basic elements in new design. And since the good old pencil are no longer is use by most designers and people at large why not give it a new assignment in design – because it’s still a cool object whether used in a more traditional way or not!
Our Danish Craftsmen Tom Rossau joined the club of enthusiastic designers and craftsman who found a new use for this fantastic and more than 150 year old invention.
made in copenhagen, denmark
Tom is famous for another iconic lamp, but perhaps this new model can create even more brand buzz for Tom Rossau.

Other designers tipped in during the last 12 month and they are making a wide range of possible new pencil icons. Perhaps it’s just because they needed new ideas or source of inspiration. But it’s rather funny taking into consideration that most designers have had a pencil close by for many years.
For now I just enjoy the new take on an old object.

Last in this new trend, it seams like pencils has drawn the attention of not just designers but other creative minds as well – for them pencil lead is now used as a micro canvas. This is rather new to most but thanks to google picture search we found a range of this new art form – perhaps we all need to sharpen the pencil in a new way too.

Christmas is getting closer

honnighjerte-pasta-stjerne-lysestage-225kr
Oh don’t we not all love Christmas, no fuss just happy days tucked in blankets and family. In Denmark we are tough to be happy and forgiving – especial around Christmas time.

We really strive to deliver on expectations and expectations are high! Fantastic food and marvelous bakery, prefect presents, tree and decoration just to name a few. We entertain our guests with near to overwhelming energy and the kids are nearly behaving.
We make lists and organize Christmas shopping – or at least I have heard than thats what we do. We compare and brag through our energetic behavior and for some odd reason we all carry round a bad conscience about being behind and ineffective.

This is why more and more retailers offer a wide range of services these days. Everything from shopping assistance to gift rapping. The other day I was even introduced to a Christmas delivery, by Santa on Christmas Night! Thats new to me.
Unfortunately we don’t really know Santa, but we too decided too offer some Christmas relief. In our newly open store in Copenhagen we have made it easy to buy the perfect present even for Granny that otherwise don’t really have any reel Christmas wishes other than sweet grandchildren.

We mixed from the wide variety of Scandinavian made products – thus made it possible to find the perfect gift from 100 danish kronerSo if you need to find something extraordinary for Christmas don’t hesitate to visit us in our store, or write to us for further information. And if you have the contact information to Santa please share.

Happy December
