This was the first day of the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark.
It was raining and cold and the leaves are turning but it didn’t matter. In fact it meant I had the garden of the museum to myself.
For me this annual exhibition - to show the work of the cabinetmakers - is always one of the best exhibitions of the year. It never fails to challenge or delight or make you look at a material or a form or a convention in a different or new way.
In a city where there is so much good architecture and so much great design, it is actually this exhibition that comes closest to summing up what this site is about - about looking at and taking photographs of and writing about those works where imagination; the ability to translate an idea into a working and feasible design; a command of the materials being used and the skill of the craftsman or the quality of manufacturing - all come together.
