A material and an object from nature that changes it ́s context from outdoor to indoor and from stone to aluminium. A limestone from Gotland is 3d-scanned, re-designed, and cast in solid aluminium. It works as a weight and support for the aluminium sheets that make up the base and tabletop. They are made in a unique edition of nine pcs. by a foundry in Norsborg, Stockholm.
* Beech wood, high gloss lacquer
A podium that was initially created for an exhibition about flags at the Nordic Museum, Stockholm. It is now manufactured as a table and pedestal by one of the oldest furniture companies in Sweden, Gärsnäs. The corner details refer to and highlight constructions that are visible on the back of the frame construction of paintings. For this purpose, a unique edition of 9 pcs. is produced in beech wood painted in a high-gloss colour.
* Oregon pine
The shape refers to columns and I-beams, which, like pedestals, have a supporting and subordinate function. A visible tongue strengthens the connection between the parts. Balk is made of Oregon pine wood in a unique edition of 9 pcs. by a cabinetmaker based in Stockholm.
