The new informal
by Fabian Peters | 11/1/2018
Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
This nod to nautical heritage is no accident. Inspired by teak decking on the fastest and finest vessels of yesteryear, Clipper echoes the design notes of these pivotal feats of craftsmanship - the Tea Clippers that opened trade routes around the world. Emulating the levels of design and attention to detail that made these ships possible has allowed Danish designer Henrik Pedersen to deliver a new and unique take on dining.
Henrik Pedersen was adamant the furniture should clearly reference its inspiration and indeed it does. From finely tapering legs that hint at masts, to the beautiful hull-like radii of the table edge, to the generous deck like slats themselves, this design is as much a story of perfection as it is a catalogue of historic reference. He says “To me this design feels like the coming together of ideas and techniques that have spanned many lifetimes, providing endless adventures and tales. I hope in their current form these concepts will live on to offer inspiration and pleasure to many others”.
