The stand that SevilPeach Architecture + Design has designed and curated for
Carl Hansen & Søn evokes a sense of calm, comfort and clarity. An architectural curtain around the perimeter of the space creates soft wavelike walls, dividing the stand into generous pockets of space both internally and externally.
SevilPeach’s enveloping curtain allows the surroundings to fade away, acoustically and visually, drawing visitors’ attention to the curated space within. Individual settings, thoughtfully populated with the work of some of design history’s greatest visionaries, each tell their own story, and form part of a narrative that started in 1908 and continues to this day.
"The ability to take a raw material and turn it into an exquisitely designed and crafted piece of furniture speaks a truth about what a refined product is. It is not just about the end result, but about everything that happens along the way."
The stand, with its warm timber flooring and gray-painted walls, comprises a series of four zones, defined by a translucent fabric curtain stunningly lit by over 100 lamps, the view through which provides alluring glimpses of what is to come. The restrained palette of colors and materials keeps the stand design simple and the focus on the furniture, while its architectural and aesthetic significance aligns with Carl Hansen & Søn’s values
Beyond the curtain, visitors reach the first of two ‘Craftsmanship’ zones, at the heart of which is an eight-meter waney-edged table made from a slice of oak taken from the center of the tree.
The table represents the remarkable transformation Carl Hansen & Søn undertakes every day in turning magnificent trees into a multitude of timeless, enduring, carefully crafted and high-quality wooden pieces.
Stepping through the curtain again into the second ‘Craftsmanship’ zone reveals the process from raw to refined, through a live demonstration from one of the master weavers who create the paper-cord seats of Hans J. Wegner’s first masterpieces, CH22-CH25 – all of which reveal the skill and craftsmanship required to turn natural, high-quality raw materials into timeless assets and lifelong investments that stand the test of time.
"As the world becomes more conscious of sustainability, it is more and more important that people understand where their products come from and what they are made of. Carl Hansen & Søn takes natural, high-quality raw materials and turns them into timeless assets and lifelong investments that stand the test of time."
