This year’s ‘The Cabinetmakers`Autumn Exhibition’ will take place from 13 November 2009 – 31 Januar 2010 at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptothek in Copenhagen. The exhibition, which started in 1984, is an association of furniture manufactures and designers. The purpose is to develop and stage an annual exhibition of new and experimental furniture types with strong practical and artistic qualities and excellent craftsmanship.

Last year the Danish designer Thomas Bentzen presented this figurative and playful piece of furniture, which refers in its details to the traditional Scandinavian wood-working.

“A room divider, a cosy nook, a shot of homeliness with a sloping ceiling that can be tiled with books or magazines. The book ends offer storage space for magazines, a graphic deviation in the room, which can be used to create order or chaos. Library is made in classic ash to give the storage a warm glow. Library is furniture for receptions, shops, offices, libraries or you home.”
