The Pine Project

Pine is a type of wood, which in a lot of ways characterises Nordic Style. Unfortunately it is perceived as a cheap almost cheasy kind of material, which means that most pine in the furniture industry is used inside sofas or hidden in sheet material. This project deals with the category of storage furniture, focusing on the usage of pine. To give pine a modern expression it is useful to combine it with other materials, which can also make the best use of the potential of the material both in construction and visually.
