Communion and Pirouette - extraordinary design and making in American maple

Introducing Communion and Pirouette, two extraordinary new works expertly crafted by Jan Hendzel Studio in American maple - a valuable yet underused hardwood - showing at the Triennale during Milan Design Week 2024. 

Communion by Giles Tettey Nartey explores culture, culinary tradition, and the rituals of domestic life in Ghana, in the form of a food-prep table of an epic scale. 

Pirouette by Parti is a range of timber furniture that takes inspiration from the fluid movement of fabric and the childlike joy of spinning around. 

‘Communion’ and ‘Pirouette’ were on display as part of Class of ’24 by Wallpaper*.
