On Amagertorv in the very center of Copenhagen you will find Illums Bolighus, one Denmark’s most impressive design store. Last Saturday there was the vernissage of the newest exhibition within the retailer’s spaces: ‘Finn Juhl’s classics meet Ask Emil Skovgaard’. The greatly talented 33 years old furniture designer Ask Emil Skovegaard was invited to present his beautiful and lovingly processed glass table in the context of some classics by Finn Juhl. On this occasion we would like to show you some of Ask Emil’s former works which demonstrate the extraordinary craftsmanship he designs his pieces with.
“I believe that many of the forms with which we surround ourselves look the way they do because someone was in a hurry when they made them. Things take time and good things take good time. I like organic furniture that looks as though it was made by nature itself – without stress. Wooden furniture is also warm and obliging. To me, wood is the perfect material because it is so imperfect. It challenges me constantly. No two pieces are ever alike.” The designer explains.
