CASE STUDY
— NEW FOLK

Design

Whether using traditional or innovative materials, designers lean on the craft and expertise of former practitioners to carve, shape, mould or weave. Employing techniques and cross-cultural elements that honour the inspiration of craftspeople and artisans who have gone before them, they continue the idioms but expand the expressions in contemporary works. These totems for a modern tribe, bearing character earned by the passing of time, are displayed in a building owned by Ole Høstbo, founder of gallery Dansk Møbelkunst, a specialist in in rare and original works of Danish design, who also loaned several pieces.
