Our intention was to frame a new room inside a room - a place for one or two persons to occupy.
We wanted to create a tactile piece of a furniture that hopefully would give the user a sense of
privacy and tranquility.
Furniture Room was crafted at the The Danish Art Workshops.
Measures: 110 cm width, 190 cm length, 260 cm height.
Materials: Kalmar-pine.
This project was part of “Re-Form”; a biannual, jury selected, exhibition platform for young and upcoming designers.
Re-Form was founded by designers Rasmus B.Fex and Maria Bruun.
Sensored by FramaEtage Projects and Elle Decoration.
 
The Re-Form exhibition was opened at Frama´s showroom in Copenhagen, June 2014.
Subsequently exhibited at the Danish Design Centre (DDC) in Copenhagen, July 2014.
The Furniture Room is constructed out of a wooden frame. The inside of the frame is lined with panels that forms a partially closed shell. The frame interprets the structure of the classic partitionwall and appears hard and edgy.
The Furniture Room is equally a seating and reclining furniture.
The shell has various openings so the user has an indirect view of the surrounding space. 
In order to amplify the space-in-space effect, the room is raised 50 cm from the floor.
At the front opening sits a small L-shaped hatch that functions either as to close off the space or a step.
In each corner post are grooved profiles so the hatch can be shifted between the two positions. 
The hatch has a practical purpose but is also a symbolic gesture that marks the transition between
being inside and outside.
The inside shell clings like a kind of skin on the skeleton frame and forms a soft, comfortable interior that contrast the supporting framework.
We specifically chose Kalmar-pine as a material for the project. This particular type of wood is
commonly used for outdoor components in houses and less often seen in furniture.
In order to emphasize the spatial differences the materials have undergone different finishing
techniques. The interior planks has been sanded smooth and all corners are filleted whereas the
exterior planks are glass blasted which removes the soft spring wood and leaves a softly ruffled
surface.
