Description

Ember is a sculptural side table treated with the Japanese wood-burning technique Shou Sugi Ban, to create a unique texture and a deep black colour. Made from Dinesen offcuts, which would have been sold as firewood.

It was originally designed for the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition in 2016 under the theme ‘Pitch Black’, suggesting exhibitors to work with black as a colour.

“I wanted to use light to create dark. A table which looked like it had just been pulled from the fire” – Troels Flensted

The charred wood rests on a black metal frame, lifting it from the ground to make it possible to appreciate how the different grain structures have reacted to the flames.

The charred surface is treated in a way which looks as natural as possible yet durable enough to withstand everyday use.

Thanks to Brdr. Krüger for helping with testing and expertise for the initial prototypes.

About the designer


Troels Flensted

Troels Flensted Studio is a Danish design studio founded with the desire to challenge materials and production processes.

By exploring characteristics and expressions of materials we create products which tell new and meaningful stories. We’re fascinated by materials, colours and how things are made, and finds inspiration in the aesthetic and undiscovered possibilities deriving from combining the three.

Our projects start with experimentation and intensive research and often results in limited edition and one-off gallery pieces. Some projects are further explored in order to achieve accessible design pieces and a more rational production process. This approach has led to several awards, grants and participation in numerous prestigious exhibitions. Our objects are available in selected galleries and interior design stores globally.

The studio was founded by Troels Flensted (born 1987) who graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2014. In January 2015, he moved back to Denmark to open his experimental studio in an old harbour district in Copenhagen.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
