All Good Things Come in Threes
‘All good things come in threes’ is a series of nested tables made in Danish ash wood. Peter Johansen drew inspiration from the fairytale about Goldilocks and the three bears, focusing on the three bears and their different characteristics and seeking to transfer these differences to the three tables. Unlike traditional nested tables, which usually have the same shape albeit in different scales, Peter Johansen’s tables have very different expressions. As an additional detail, the tables can be hung up one under the other.

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. He also took part in MINDCRAFT12 in Milan in 2012.
