A modern cabinet for the living room and hallway.
The long, round legs are positioned at the outer corners while the smart brass-handles on the cabinet doors are aligned with the tabletop. The left room is empty while the rooms on the mid and right are each divided by a removable shelf. The tabletop comes in either oak or marble – both materials known for their beautifully vivid structures.
‘Quality over fashion’. That’s how the British (and now Oslo-based) designer Thomas Jenkins describes his vision for design. Jenkins is trained as an engineering designer but got frustrated with the lack of connection to the end user and decided to move into the universe of furniture and product design instead. And here, simplicity has become a key element to him. As he strives to come up with new objects that people can live with over a very long time, finding the right balance in a design is vital. It needs to have enough presence that you grow attached to it, but not too much that you lose interest over time.
We are a Danish design company with roots deeply grounded in Scandinavian design and tradition for good craftsmanship. We are owned by Jesper and Vibeke Panduro, who live with their two children in the Northern harbour city of Aalborg. This is where Skagerak was founded too, back in 1976, when the first dreams of making long-lasting design took form.
