FCS Design Award 2010. The dining table is made in collaboration with Thomas Dudzinski as a designproposition to the FSC Design Award 2010.
The dining table is a central part in most people’s homes. This is where the whole family is gathered, and the table fulfil many different functions and is thereby a base for many different subjects of conversation. That is why we think it is ideal to use the dining table as a mouthpiece for the many alternative FSC-certified woods.
We have made a table top, which is composed of many different species of wood. By doing so, the table top brings the different FSC-certified woods from Brazil into focus, and encourages to sustainable debates around the table.
The specific selection of wood is not predetermined (it is possible to use the wood you have available) but we have looked at the FSC-certified wood species “Cerejeira“, “Jequitiba” and “Guariuba” as alternatives to ash, douglas and oak, which are the species we have used in our prototype.
The name “Vino Kulmat” means “oblique angles” and refers to the angles on the frame which are 100 degrees. This gives the dining table a modern twist, and the table becomes a sculpture when it is not in use.
