Maria Bruun: A New Take on Danish Design
03/09/2019 - Maria Bruun is one of the selected design studios protagonist in the conceptual setting of CHART Design in Copenhagen at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art.
 
Visitors of CHART Design get a unique insight into Maria Bruun's design practice where boundaries between functional furniture design and artistic experiments are fluid.

Maria Bruun's design approach is characterized by a long-term commitment to each concept. In a process where ideas are developed with consistency, she builds up distinctive series of furniture and objects that can be composed to form an eclectic collection.
 
“I find it important to develop furniture with aesthetic consideration that contributes with more than just the purely functional aspect. A carefully designed piece of furniture with well-crafted details and a well-selected palette of materials can be perceived as a caring gesture towards the user” says Maria Bruun.
 
Maria Bruun’s contribution to CHART Design included the first public presentation of her distinct and expressive table series Bigfoot, the angled mirror objects Mirror Mirror, and the new series of stackable boxes Dependables
 
Bigfoot – Mirror Mirror – Dependables
Bigfoot consists of five side tables in solid ash wood and a dining table in solid oak. The collection is based on a simple construction, a precise design and strong identity with a minimum of details. The Bigfoot collection consists of Bigfoot Micro, Bigfoot Mini, Bigfoot Low plinth, Bigfoot Sidetable, Bigfoot Coffee Table and Bigfoot Dining Table.

Mirror Mirror is a design that questions human reflection, or lack thereof. The angled mirror reflects a small simplistic section of reality. Imagine a mirror that reflected more than one side of the story. A series of angled mirror objects that parasites in corners, edges and surfaces, reflecting several sides of both the space and the voyeur. The mirrors are simple and precise in their design and the steam-bend solid oak frame is the key characteristic of the design. Mirror Mirror is produced by Paustian.

Dependables is a new collection of boxes in solid walnut made with exquisite details. A refined box series to store what you do not need to be in visual contact with. The boxes have different perforated patterns on the sides and can be stacked. The crafted details and the meeting between the boxes create a light and floating expression.
