The Remissus trays and Pedestal table, all in soap-washed birch, are the result of the project Objectum – a library of 60 objects in birch made over 60 days, with the aim of gaining a deeper knowledge of the material’s inherent properties. Remissus’ organic shape is carved from one piece of wood, inspired by the unpredictable contours of a drop of water. Pedestal is machine-made with hand-carved details, giving the furniture its distinct tactility. Both objects are based on craftsmanship and knowledge of materials as prerequisites for producing furniture with a long life.
