Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF are introducing a new collection of tables for the Danish producer HAY. The collection is called Upside Down and is exhibited at the Cabinetmakers autumn exhibition at Thorvaldsens museum in Copenhagen.
The Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition, which is known for its experimental approach to thematic issues, cooperation constellations and products, is once again blazing new trails in an effort to give the audience a total experience. The sculptural furniture is presented in the company of the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen’s neo-classicist sculptures at Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen, a truly outstanding exhibition venue, which was designed by another icon of Danish and international renown, Michael Gottlieb Bindesbøll.
We have for a long time been fascinated by the underside of furniture and the constructions you find when for example turning a table or a chair upside down. There are a lot of beauty, knowledge and excellency in craftsmanship to reveal by this game. To make these kind of details visible we choose to position them in an opposite way, Upside Down, says Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom.
