The modernist Corbel Shelf is a wall-hung podium that combines contrasting materials to arresting effect. The invention of design studio Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen, the versatile design in marble, dark stained oak and plated steel takes it’s name and design cues from architectural weight-bearing brackets traditionally made from stone or wood.
Our wooden furniture is offered in two different types – natural wood veneers and solid wood – equal in beauty and with only minor differences in look and durability. Wood veneers are made from thin sheets of natural wood that are applied to a base of MDF, plywood or chipboard, giving the surface the appearance of solid wood. The final product is then varnished with polyurethane for a durable, easy-care finish and to prevent spills damaging the surface and underlying design. Wood veneer furniture uses less wood than its solid counterparts, making it a more affordable option. Furthermore, wood veneers are less prone to splintering and warping that can result from a solid wood design.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
The Copenhagen-based design studio Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen creates furniture and interior objects for clients across the world. Founded in 2016 by Mads Sætter-Lassen and Emil Krøyer, their honest approach to design results in logical, functional and sculptural objects that showcase their strong cultural understanding and Danish design heritage to bridge the gap between art and design. Krøyer-Sætter Lassen began their collaboration at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, where they have graduated with their BA and subsequently, an MA. Their collaboration has grown from a give-and-take about art and design into the creation of existing projects. The duo recognizes their differences and strengths allowing them to approach their process from different character angles. Krøyer-Sætter Lassen engages each other to seek new materials and perspectives in order to work in a nicety way. Krøyer and Sætter-Lassen's honest focus is revealed through their consideration of material properties and tectonic details. They prefer to make the conscious choice of turning a joint or assembly into a visible design asset instead of concealing it -keeping true to the industrial way.
