If you’ve ever fallen for those wide-planked floorboards featured so often in Nordic interiors, there’s no doubt Dinesen was responsible for them. I call it simplistic Nordic luxury, as it’s such excellent quality.
Known for their exquisite flooring crafted from family-owned forests in Germany and France, the Danish brand has recently launched a new collection of furniture during 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen. Consisting of eight pieces, the new collection includes a bench, daybed, a table, stool and trestle.
Created by Design Studies, a studio founded in 2013 by Hans Peter Dinesen and Mikkel Vestergaard, the series encourages the viewer to explore the variations and nature of wood. Designed as an experience, they aim to activate your senses through a connection with sustainable aesthetics. And there are no distractions from other materials here, the beauty is entirely in the honesty and quality of the Douglas fir and oak.
“The goal is always to enrich life for the people who shape their life around the furniture. This collection is a manifestation of how design can provide a setting for life that brings people together and also brings us closer to nature and enhances our well-being.”
Hans Peter Dinesen, Design Studies
The DS001 tabletop appears almost to float on top of its legs and the natural grain in the wood is just beautiful.
Another favourite has to be the DS301 daybed. Be still my beating heart. It also comes with the optional cushion upholstered in a choice of Sorensen leather or Kvadrat fabrics. Simplistic Nordic luxury at its best.
I could see this furniture collection taking centre stage in a home in years to come, such is its timeless quality – don’t you agree?
