Case is a collection of coffee tables in aluminum and oak that interprets the classic nesting tables.
The Case tables have a youthful and functional form, which represents the refined industrial design approach that is designer Hans Hornemann’s signature. Case is available in two complimentary sizes, where the smaller table can be put under the larger one and pulled out as needed. Hans Hornemann got the idea for the design from the simple flight cases that are used to transport sound equipment for concerts and have very strong aluminum frames. The small Case tables have lighter shades of the larger table’s colors, which serve to create an elegant visual connection between the tables. With their delicate symphonies of color, the Case coffee tables are an easy way to bring a little color into your decor.
The young Danish designer Hans Hornemann graduated as a Master of Engineering in Industrial Design from the University of Aalborg 2014. Hans Hornemann emphasizes the combination of aesthetic simplicity and high functionality in expressive and light-hearted design. He is fascinated by the industrial and technical solutions in design in terms of both material and mode of expression. Natural materials often inspire him, and he endeavors to strip the design to its bone and portray the honesty found in the materials.
“In my opinion design should be a balance between an aesthetic minimalism and functionality with a user friendly experience. As a designer I aim to be true to the material used in order to enhance and bring out its natural qualities and characteristics. I value clean and minimalistic lines that add a new spin to the classic design. In creating a design, I think it’s important to start from scratch and bring a new contribution to the products idiom, expression or functionality.”
