« Subtle patterns can disappear in some types of light and in other types of light they come to life.”

In the SAKYU table Fenhann continues to explore the mathematic Sine curves that he also used in the SAKYU Bench. In this piece the curves are much more subtle. In some light and distance they can disappear and in other light the pattern looks very bold. In some cases the pattern look like the same on a beach and in other light it resembles a close-up of a vinyl record.

The table also has an interesting functionality in the way that all the waves are in the same height and quite close to each other. If you place an object on the table it will feel like there are no waves. To create a focus point on the surface Fenhann has created an additional tray on the table. It has a cork underside and gives an interesting contrast.

The table was developed at the Danish Art Workshops in Copenhagen. Rasmus Fenhann programmed the CNC machine to make the very accurate curvy waves. The table is made in solid white Maple. To prevent the wood from moving or twisting when processed, the wood is clued on a special board of laminated pine wood.

This piece is designed for the solo exhibition “From honeycombs to Pyramids” at Galerie Maria Wettergren in Paris – 2020

    Creating designs with an equal focus on sculptural and functional qualities, Rasmus Fenhann’s works are made in carefully selected natural materials, especially wood. He is considered as one of the most important Scandinavian designers today in the field of handmade art design. His working processes combines traditional, sometimes near-forgotten craft techniques with advanced high-tech procedures, including computer-based sketching and visualization. His painstakingly precise treatment of wood sur faces, ending up in a velvet-like, soft finish and with invisible joints, is the result of an extraordinary effort, which is both mental and physical. It is exquisite craftsmanship, close to the obsessive. In the words of the artist, “It has to do with being able to zoom in, infinitely… There mustn’t be any flaws, not even the tiniest, in the delicate woodwork. Time is key, and infinite repetition is expected until a level of breathtaking per fection is reached.

    Rasmus Fenhann has a double education from the Danish Royal Academy of Ar t and Design, Furniture Depar tment 1997-2003, and as a Cabinetmaker 1991-1996. He has frequently exhibited in Japan, Europe and in the United States, and his works are part of impor tant private and public collections including the permanent collection of the Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen, Denmark. Rasmus Fenhann has received several Prizes and awards such as the Danish Arts and Crafts Silver Medal, 2004; the Finn Juhl Prize, 2016 and most recently, the Inga & Ejvind Kold Christensen Prize in 2022.
