The Home of Hans Bølling features the lounge chair alongside two other new Bølling designs – a stool and a coffee table, both inspired by his classic Tray Table design from 1963, all made from U.S. red oak, maple and cherry.
Curated and set-designed by Danish designer Sara Martinsen, the Home of Hans Bølling offers visitors a striking insight into Bølling’s life and creative process, as well as showcasing the strength, character and versatility of the three renewable hardwoods as design materials. To accompany Bølling’s furniture, Martinsen has created a series of bespoke art pieces using the same American hardwoods. The artworks take their inspiration from the circle – the shape that defines both Bølling’s original Tray Table and his new works, and which has come to represent sustainability and responsible manufacture.
“This is a particularly exciting project for AHEC, as it will bring together a very relevant message – the need to expand our timber choices to be truly sustainable, highlighting three high-performing and beautiful woods which are not currently being widely used – and the legacy of craftsmanship and timber knowledge of the Danish design sector. It is a collaboration with two partners with whom we share a love for wood and sustainability; iconic designer/architect Hans Bølling and powerhouse of Danish craftsmanship Brdr. Krüger.” – David Venables, European director of AHEC
