Korpus and Furublokk
Korpus is a wall-mounted shelf crafted from a single sheet of recycled aluminium. The metal is laser cut and hammered to shape by hand, leaving visible traces of the manual process. The construction requires no welding, making Korpus a production-friendly and 100% recyclable product. Furublokk, a family of side tables in solid pine wood and linseed oil, have a hollow block-like design, hence the name. An opening in the upper surface makes the objects a cross between a table, a storage space, a display unit and a sculpture. The design also gives the inexpensive and widespread Norwegian pine an unexpected finish that is usually reserved for more exclusive types of wood.
