A chest in Kalmar Pine by Claus Bjerre for Dansk Møbelkunst Gallery. The chest is made in Kalmar Pine and characterized by a very harmonious exterior with vertical, displaced pieces of wood, that create a beautiful contrasting effect of light and shadow. This structure continues on the lid where it merges into a refined interlaced structure – a feature that is also present when you open the hinged lid. The construction testifies to Bjerre’s experimental approach which demanded a close collaboration with the cabinetmaker as his idea of interlacing wood demanded unconventional and highly skilled construction methods. The chest contains two loose trays nestled above the main compartment and is available in two sizes, each realised in 20 examples.
