Minimalist furniture and decorative objects that celebrate the beauty of natural wood.
Founded in 1898, Danish brand Dinesen has been making wood flooring and furniture for more than 120 years. In 2020, the company collaborated with creative studio Design Studies to produce the Dinesen Collection, a line of furniture and decorative objects. Like the best Scandinavian designs, the collection offers meaningful design solutions for modern living spaces through minimalist as well as sustainable designs that aim to stimulate one’s senses. All products draw inspiration from the simple beauty of a wooden plank, the heart of all Dinesen products. As a result, the range features clean lines and rectangular forms that highlight the character of natural timber.
“The goal is always to enrich life for the people who shape their life around the furniture. This collection is a manifestation of how design can provide a setting for life that brings people together and also brings us closer to nature and enhances our well-being,” said Hans Peter Dinesen of Design Studies. The Dinesen Collection comprises eight products. Apart from a table, stool, bench, and daybed, the line also includes a stand with separate planks. This adaptable design allows the user to make either a desk or smaller dining table.
Available in different sizes wood “bricks” made from leftover materials offer an ingenious way to display objects or serve food. Developed by artist and researcher Sissel Tolaas who collaborated with architecture and design firm Studio Pneuma, the home scent DD-2 completes the collection. The scented oil comes with a wooden block made of Dinesen Douglas wood. Placing oil drops on the object, one can bring notes of freshly cut Douglas fir trees into a room.
