Marbelous Wood in the Danish Biennale for Crafts and Design 2011


Not surprisingly, Pernille Snedker Hansen’s beautiful ‘Marbelous Wood’ project was nominated for the Biennial Prize in the Danish Biennale for Crafts and Design 2011.

The jury’s statement: ”The very idea is striking. To marble an entire floor, using an old and almost forgotten technique to vitalise a simple pinewood floor and turn it into a powerful visual, almost psychedelic experience – now, that is truly remarkable and worthy of recognition! With a huge work effort, the designer adds synthetic, caramel-like marbling to the humble pinewood, thus turning this plain Nordic raw material into a valuable object that one yearns to own and see unfolded on floors and walls”
