Recently this year’s Cabinetmaker’s Autumn Exhibition opened at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptothek in Copenhagen. Since 1981 Scandinavian manufacturers and designers present the results of their collaborations every year within this exhibition. This year we found some extraordinary pieces which we want to show you within the next couple of days.

Having visited the PP Møbler workshop once I am still impressed by the meticulousness and top quality craftsmanship of the Danish manufactory – a PP Møbler piece you will have forever. Recently they presented ‘Hang on’, a coat rack designed by Thomas Alken which consists of two parts: A rail in ash and hangers produced in all possible wood types depending on the current activity in the workshop. The two parts are easily assembled without the use of glue or tools, so it is possible to make your very own combination of wood types.

”I often got fascinated by the many wonderful peaces of waste wood that naturally appears in the creation of PP Møbler’s collection. There were pieces in ash, maple, oak, beech, walnut and cherry as well as various other wood types, which I didn’t immediately recognize. Each piece was like colour samples: Both individually beautiful, but also exciting in a mix of many different, where colour and grain look good in combinations. These pieces of waste wood fascinated me. They where far too good to burn but too small to be part of a chair or a table. So I went home wondering if I could figure out a good product that would make use of them.” says Thomas Alken.
