The Objekt Bord is an assembly of two components – an upright curve and a circle. The piece questions the distinction between an object and a piece of furniture and reflects a constant demand for finding balance. Svenningsen’s project was driven by a curiosity to learn and understand the process of laminating and bending plywood, the birch ply offers strong structural integrities yet is flexible enough to smoothly bend.
