HALF WAY ROUND FOR DANSK MØBELKUNST, 2018
A group of furniture designed for Dansk Møbelkunst, consisting of a table, a stool and a screen. The three elements are all made from Oregon Pine and share an idiom, characterised by refined simplicity and beautiful contrasting interplays between soft, rounded curves and sharp, disciplined lines.
For this project, Anastassiades worked closely with Dansk Møbelkunst Gallery, resuming one of the most distinctive features of Danish furniture making: the close collaboration between designers and cabinetmakers. Each piece in the collection is an independent work and all are sold individually, yet there is an obvious conversation going on between the three elements. They are very much related, not only in material quality but also in their formal language.
The screen consists of three curves connected by two canvas hinges, appearing almost as columns that can be positioned in a variety of ways: as a room divider, or even a changing cubicle in the bedroom. The stool mimics the curvature of the screen and can be placed in one of its curves or alongside the table.
