Soft light by Petter Thörne

The name refers to the soft quality of the light and the materiality-softness of the shade. The use of fabric gives a warmth and mild impression. Three fabric types with different features and translucency, creates the shade. Together they make a reflector, an outer texture and a diffuser. The thin diffusing layer at the bottom materialise the light and makes it alive, due to movement in the feather-light fabric. Benefits by using fabrics are lower footprint during shipping and improved acoustic during use.
All textiles are made by flame retardant material.

Extreme Patient by Thomas E. Alken
A table with seven legs, where only three have grown big enough to carry the tabletop. A plate carried by seven legs – equally important – all contributing in their own way.
Materials: Smoked hardened glass, oiled oak.
Hypnagogia by Signe Emdal
My object is a Jacquard pre-digital knitted BEDROOM RUG, carefully made for your naked feet in the morning, while transitioning between sleep and awake. The rug is a hybrid made with a NEW KNIT tech that is currently popular in the high performance fashion and sneaker scene. Car seats, construction of houses, the sneaker industry and packaging brands all use knit tech to create flexible materials. I like how the industries are twisting the old textile techniques and merging them with innovative fibres. I have been working, making and building textiles for ten years with 1984 pre-digital knitting machinery. It’s a really amazing German tool made to last forever. Once it was a High Tech tool for fashion. Now it’s more like a fun Vintage Tech object. My wish is to expand into the scene of contemporary digital textile machinery and create beautiful, innovative magic.

biography

Christianshavner Skabet by Ellinor Ericsson 
This cupboard has many stories. The main story is about Christianshavn, a small area of Copenhagen, that I recently moved to. This part of the city is special for many reasons. It includes people from many different social layers, from the lowest one to the top, but together they have a special love for Christianshavn. This area is also known for its old conserved architecture, from different times, that got mixed up with the modern one. This special cosy atmosphere, the contrast in the architecture and the contrast between the social layers of people living there was both the starting point and inspiration for my cupboard. The other story is about me, and the extreme. Extreme for me is to not use textile in my furniture design, as I never tried this before. This ended up in using all other materials possible... and the challenge to match the right colours and structures, which reflect and represent the people and the façades on the streets of Christianshavn.

Fluffy by Stine Linnemann
Fluffy is an extremely cuddly lamp. It is a lamp made for touching and interacting, one that you can adjust and change according to the situation. Whether it’s lounging on the sofa to spread the Danish ‘hygge’ vibe or helping your child to fall asleep by providing softness and light. Fluffy is a cuddly ambient light, that can provide comfort in your daily life.
Natura Morte by Evalou Hauge

The project is inspired by still life/stilleben/nature morte paintings. In these paintings you find food, flowers, dead animals, books, vases etc. In my tapestries from last years exhibition I focused on the dead flowers in the piece ‘still life detached’, and now the turn has come to birds. The birds are dead, I held them in my hands, spread out their wings, photographed them and then digitally printed them on fabric. They have then been hand embroidered with black pearls, sequins and gold stitches in India.

Talpa by Rikke Frost

The theme ‘Extremely’ inspired me to work with an extremely simple chair that can be used everywhere every day. ‘Talpa’ chair is extremely versatile and incredibly comfortable. ‘Talpa’ is Latin for a chameleon and refers to the fact that the chair can change its look and function by changing the cover/seat. Just unbutton some push-buttons and you can remove the cover/seat. The waxed canvas has excellent water shedding properties, superior durability and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor. The nubuck/felt cover is a luxury version with a lot of texture and feel to it. It has extremely little handling in the manufacturing process. The simple, yet curved and characteristic metal tube frame can be stacked extremely tight and the covers/seats can be folded and stored extremely flat taking up very little space. The chair is very light and can easily be moved around everywhere everyday.

Bark by Rikke Hagen

I am extremely fascinated by cork as material used for furniture and larger objects. We are used to cork in smaller objects but when working it into large scale the textural characteristics of cork emerges. Cork is an all-natural material with unique properties. It is light. It is impermeable to liquids, elastic, compressible and highly abrasion resistant. It provides thermal and acoustic insulation, and is even fire retardant. Furthermore it is completely biodegradable and recyclable. 'Bark' is a lounge chair made of oak cork, manufactured from 3D prints and advanced technology in a 5-axis CNC milling machine.

+Box by Wednesday Architecture

Based on minimal geometries, +Boxes pay tribute to the ideographic writing system ‘Blisssymbols’, which is a purely visual, speech-less language, consisting of several hundred basic symbols. Each symbol represents a concept, which can be composed together to generate new symbols that represent new concepts. We have made a collection of sculptural bentwood boxes that relate in their geometry to the ‘Blisssymbols’. They span from simple to expressive shapes. The +Boxes are free from chemicals and plastics, as they are glued with natural glue and surface treated with natural wax. They are molded in 3 layers of Maple veneer. Bases and lids are made from solid and veneered Maple.

Dancing by Nino Güller

A rectangular prism is split into two pieces by a circular line: the bottom as the base part and the top as the head, containing the light source. A table lamp with a basic geometric shape. Yet it has two different states: When closed it is grounded, secure and steady. In the other state it holds a critical position, where the top part is balancing on the edge, on the verge of falling down. When I design objects I am seeking for the tension between a few basic elements only. I find a poetic expression in how they act together, how they shape one another and how they multiply in each other’s element. For me these objects symbolise the delicate dance and tension that different objects create at home. A balanced choreography is about harmony intruded by disruptive elements — keeping it alive. Balanced. Extremely.

Volume by Jonas Edvard / Nikolaj Steenfatt

‘Volume’ is made from two pieces of perforated steel sheets, which are pressed in shape creating a strong and curved seating held together by the simple meeting of the tubular steel legs. The appearance of ‘Volume’ is both solid and see-through showing the unique qualities of steel, which is strong yet flexible at the same time. The perforated sheet material enables an honest and detailed design in a soft curved shape creating a comfortable and fully recyclable chair. Steel is a modern material that outperforms all other materials when it comes to strength, durability vs. availability and costs – it is a material which through history has proven to be a key player in creating innovation and new technology, from the industrial world of the Eiffel Tower to the ancient Chinese weaponry.

Sui by Studio FEM

Dare, challenge, risk! Be extremely… selfish! Selfish is usually meant to be an insult; someone selfish simply takes care of themselves and does not consider others. Devoted to or caring only for oneself is an extreme act where one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc. is of primary concern, with a disregard for others. Extremely selfish – good or bad? Putting yourself first, only caring about yourself and your own needs is something bad. Or is it? Maybe selfish can be so extreme and actually benefit more than oneself. ‘Sui’ is an extremely selfish piece of furniture! Putting itself on a pedestal of mirrors, having the thought of only serving one, demanding space by its voluminous size and attracting attention with its bright colours. Or is it extremely unselfish? With Sui’s voluminous and modular size, can it then serve more than one and thereby benefit others?

Clavicula Chair by Jonas Lyndby Jensen

This cabinetmakers chair is a remake of the very first chair I made as an apprentice 17 years ago. The first chair I made by hand — at that time the CNC technology was not as developed as it is today, and I wanted to re-create the design using only CNC. Nowadays there is nothing extreme by making a whole piece of furniture using computers, but in a historic perspective the development has been extremely fast, from the time where wood was shaped using non-electric tools up until today where a computer generated object can be made by machines with great accuracy. Technology should help us push the limits of possibilities in the material, but I still want the result to express the knowledge and quality of a craftsman. The chair is made of soap treated oak and aniline leather.

Parts by Gustaf Wollin

My project is all about honesty. Staying true to the materials and creating an uncomplicated and honest piece of furniture. The chosen materials reflect the value of interesting combinations that seem unattractive at first, in order to create something new. The combination of the materials, together with the expression of the chair underlines the simplicity and honesty of the design. As in life, it is the combination of details that makes something unique and interesting.

EXA by Alvilde Holm

Whether it is stamps or stones, a collection of objects can be exalted by exhibiting it. EXA is a display system designed to expose things that we normally hide away in a drawer or put on the windowsill. The things that are dear to us and communicates who we are. The trays can be used for storage and display, creating a soft transition from fragile objects to the metal shelves. The modules can be connected in multiple directions, creating an adaptable free standing structure. Inspired by museum display cases, this design derives from the extreme concept of a home museum.

Skinn Chair by Gudmundur Ludvik

From one extreme to the other. I have always been fascinated by products with a built-in capacity to change shape. A folding chair needs to stretch from one state adapted to the body into another optimized for storage. At all times it must function aesthetically and ergonomically and the transformation should take place smoothly and seamlessly. Balancing requirements of the two states is the main challenge of creating a folding chair; however it often results in more or less successful compromises. With this particular type of construction and choice of materials I have made it possible to optimise both states, without compromising the other. The textile adapts and becomes flat when stored. Unfolded it becomes voluminous and offers perfect ergonomic support.

Pleated Wood by Pernille Snedker Hansen & Else-Rikke Brunn

Translating the traditions of Japanese folding screens, Suminagashi ink techniques and origami, the two Danish designers have enlarged an asymmetrical pleating made with marbled wood veneer. Inspired by Japanese folding screens and their scenic landscapes, the marbling decoration on ‘Pleated Wood’ is distilled to two colours meeting in a horizontal line, moving across the pleated surface. The screen wall ‘Pleated Wood’ is merging wood veneer with textile techniques. The construction is an asymmetrical pleated textile, glued between marbled birch plywood. Its flexible design can be shaped to space and is made in modules of H 150cm, B 18cm and L 180cm.

The Monoframe by Antonio Scaffidi

There is no progress within the comfort of what we know. On first sight one might look at something very familiar, but there is more to it. To think extremely in an everyday object requires revision and questioning of every single part. To aim beyond the necessary to achieve marginal gains. Maybe because we know there is a proven way to produce an object, we stretch rational boundaries to explore where it could lead to. The process becomes irrational, but the result might be fascinating. ‘The Monoframe’ is about the process of rethinking a chair's structure. A hollow carbon fibre frame with a material thickness of just above 1mm and fibres meticulously arranged to achieve optimum strength – like a muscle. By doing so, the fibres define the figure of the chair. ‘The Monoframe’, a series of graceful, curving motions – extremely sinuous!

NOV by Thomas Albertsen

I started this project with a function I found interesting, not knowing what kind of product I would end up with. I worked with trying to use the friction magnets create when placed on a magnetic surface. What I firstly came up with was very complex, but it had an interesting function. I approached it from different angles, simplified it and ended up with a lamp. The round lampshade is held up by magnets, the magnets sit on 3 steel rods that create a triangle in the bottom of the heavy square foot.
