Pernille Snedker Hansen Marbelous Wood

Pernille Snedker Hansen's Snedker Studio imprint is best known for her Marbelous Wood process. Hansen describes the process: "Produced one drop of colour after another, ring by ring, the pattern is constructed on the water surface. The final result is a reflection of the annual rings of wood."

Pernille Snedker Hansen Marbelous Wood Wave floorboards

Pernille Snedker Hansen has repurposed an old marbling technique giving Nordic wood a supernatural, organic, colourful and vibrant pattern. The wooden planks for "Wave" are made one by one, and thus each floor board acquires a unique pattern of coloured stripes.

Jakob Jørgensen Tools for Mindcraft 14

Tools consists of hand-crafted woodworking tools (saw, plane, knives, axe) and a wooden toolbox that is made up of the tools that it stores. Jakob Jørgensen was inspired by a Viking-age Mästermyr tool chest he found at Gotland and for the Mindcraft 14 exhibition in Milan, he learned to embrace the tradition of a craftsman who makes all his own tools.

The quartet of Danish designers will be on hand at Dwell on Design NY, from October 9 to 11, to present pieces on the show floor and participate in a panel discussion about nurturing design talent. See the full programming lineup at DwellonDesign.com.
