The Cabinetmakers' Exhibition focuses on 'Petite' furniture
This year, the exhibition is taken to Øregaard Museum, which was originally built as a holiday resort for the Søbøtker family . The thematic guidelines evolved from the early 20th century building’s healthy proportions. Members were tasked with designing furniture with the concept of ‘Petite’ in mind, a term that covers so much more than its literal translation ‘small’. Besides a limited size, it suggests elegance, grace, and sophistication, that goes well in line with the Sobotker house’s human-scale affluence. The 2015 brief called for self-supporting furniture designs with dimensions of 60x60 maximum.
Citing the organisers’ slogan, although sizes were limited, ideas were big, as the final pieces by TAF, Iskos-Berlin, Monique Engelund, amongst others, show. The innovative designs were supported by Norm. Architects' exhibition setting, which includes mirrored podiums that lead to an overall light, elegant, yet strong look. The Cabinetmakers' Autumn Exhibition is on display in Copenhagen till mid-October, when it will be transported to Maison du Danemark in Paris for an international presentation.
