These tabletops by Danish designer Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt are made from leftover wood and laminates from the Danish kitchen manufacturer Multiform. The project was carried out at the National Workshops for Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, and is the second project of its kind from Vibeke.


Recircle Table

The first project, the Recircle Tables, were also made of scrap wood and leftover wood from the furniture production industry. The Recircle Tables were created for the Biennial of Art and Design at Trapholt Art Museum 2009, the theme of which was sustainability.

For her new tabletops, Vibeke states:

I always work with geometrical shapes but it is important for me to add some sort of distraction. In this case the randomness of the materials I use makes a contrast to the strict compositions. It is a way of making order in the chaos of different materials. I work with right angles because all the plates I get from the factory have right angles and in this way I minimize the waste. The composition of the tabletops resembles a classic check pattern as we know it from tablecloths but it is no longer a pattern since there is no repetition.
