On the occasion of Denmark’s annual design event 3 days of design. New Works opened the doors to bright and airy premises with their exhibition ‘Tabulu’ created in collaboration with Lotta Agaton Interiors. A shift from shadowy, muted tones to a brighter palette marks new beginnings and lights up in the dark season ahead. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to visit this year’s exhibition myself but the images kindly shared by New works, give a good impression of what to expect after booking an appointment to visit the white, lofty atelier Lotta created.
New Works about the Tabula exhibition: With the intent of creating a space where one can bring oneself in and draw with bold lines, the exhibition plays on the idea of a white canvas. The name TABULA, the latin word for tablet, conveys the concept of a frame for creation – alluding also, to the term tabula rasa, which has been used in philosophy as a notion for the self as a clean tablet, where thoughts and impressions are placed. TABULA offers a place to breathe, rethink and nurture the emotional side of creativity.
White-toned furnishings and objects create a monochromatic impression that calms the eye and highlights silhouettes and material qualities. Explore the premises to experience New Works’ core collection of furniture, lighting and objects put into play alongside extensions to the Florence line and the new Margin lighting series designed by John Astbury.
Margin lighting series designed by John Astbury
Being all into sandy and beige colours I love the new Margin Lighting series and designer John Asbury’s modern interpretation of a classic luminaire in powder coated steel with textile shade. Exploring a tiered typology for lighting, Margin’s intersecting shades gently diffuse the light and instantly set the tone with warmth and tactility.
The softness of the fabric is tempered by a clean and graphic silhouette that lends a certain presence and volume to a space. It is the sense of proportions, along with details such as the linear element through the lamp, which sharpen the aesthetics and allow Margin’s special character to unfold.
