Kolonn at Konstfacks Degree Exhibition
Dovetailing is a handicraft, a tacit knowledge that is difficult to convey to another person through writing down or verbalising. It’s something that requires practice and experience to fully understand. My degree project deals with how I explore new ‘dimensions’ for my furniture design, starting from the technique of dovetailing. How can I fashion a piece of furniture that gives a feeling of weight, security, and stability, but offers the potential to be moved at the same time?
