The Whale Cabinet for Swedish producer Friends of wood

The Whale Cabinet
The Whale Cabinet has hand painted whales by David Ericsson on a cotton aquarelle-paper 640g.
The paper itself is almost self-supporting and very strong. The feeling is unexpected, very sturdy and fragile at the same time.
Birch wood, 8mm glass planes and brass hinges.

David Ericsson was invited to participate in the exhibition of “Hans Wegner A Nordic Design Icon from Tønder” at The Tønder Art Museum.
Too celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner, along with one designer from each of the Nordic countries.
David Ericsson designed a collection that bears the name of Hans J. Wegener’s hometown Tønder.

“Hans J. Wegner worked both with objects that are produced in a large scale and in a kind of limited edition with very skilled craftsmen.
I contacted a dear friend and a Cabinet Maker Martin Altwegg. Martin is also an Associated Professor Science in Cabinet Making at Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies.
So we started a collaboration that explores the high level of craftsmanship.
The Tønder Collection is also a material investigation, to give some new material values to wood, booth physical and philosophical values.
The material are in fact not “new” but maybe not common as a collaborator with wood.” – David Ericsson

Cabinet Maker Martin Altwegg has built The Tønder Collection.

The Tønder Collection will be exhibited at The Tønder Art Museum from the 5th of April – 2th of November 2014.













The Sideboard for Swedish producer Friends of wood

The Sideboard
The Sideboard has a copper fabric as a top to mark where you put things that need more warmth and care.
On the two planes can you store binders, books, things etc. Birch wood.





The Writing Desk for Swedish producer Friends of wood

The Writing Desk
The Writing Desk has a copper fabric as a tabletop to give warmth and shine to the user.
The copper fabric is also a test to find other materials instead of leather that can give patina and fingerprints after time and use.
Copper is a cold metal to put your hands on, but when it’s a fabric it becomes warm and gentle for the user.
The drawers has place for pencils, rulers, papers and folders on vegetable-tanned leather.
Oak wood for places that needed and birch wood for construction.

Material Pallete for artistic research project called "Friends of Wood"
The concept of "Freinds of Wood" To find material friends to wooden constructions manifested in fixed size of cabinets.
Many different materials where investigated, the list is still long over materials and concepts that can be realized.
The idea was not to make comercial cabinets, it's more about trial and error, redo over and over again
. The cabinets are not ment to be solitarys, they are a evolution of the previous cabinet. in that sence the all are connceted to each others.
