These trestles in solid untreated Oregon pine is a simple logical construction made by hand. Peter Johansen was inspired by the construction of swing sets. He wanted to design trestles that will get more beautiful with time. And he put white ’socks’ on the table legs to protect them against knocks from daily use.

b. 1974, Danish Furniture Designer
Peter Johansen graduated from the Danish Design School in 2004. His working process mostly involves model building, often in 1:1. He draws inspiration from his own everyday life and surroundings; as he puts it, “I guess I just tend to notice my surroundings!” He characterises his work as logical and as a flirt with the banal.
Peter Johansen took part in Danish Crafts’ Craft Collections 9, 11, 12 and 15. He received grants from the Danish Arts Foundation in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. His exhibition venues include the Danish Design Centre in 2006, Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2008, Salone de Mobile in Milan in 2010 and the London Design Week in 2011. He has created designs for Hay and Normann Copenhagen. And together with the group REMOVE, Peter Johansen designed the café DANISH at the Danish Design Centre and served as an exhibition architect for the ‘Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition’ in 2011.
