I plead guilty to Scandinavian design crime: I love ornamentation. Adorning your surroundings is a popular tradition and a human drive. For me ornamentation is joy, a way of showing objects respect and a tool for provoking emotions in the user
Under the heading Ornamental Obsessions, I let ideas of proud rustic cabinets meet inspiration from textile structures. Gingerbread goes digital thanks to modern production, enabling new sculptural ways to adorn a cabinet.
J u d g e s ’ c o m m e n t s :
A cabinet with a smart, well-considered, resource- efficient design, where the digital meets the traditional with a cautious, slightly restrained gingerbread. A play on ornamentation that exudes complexity and contra- diction. The door to the future of rustic style stands ajar.
