Base Bench was exhibited as part of the group exhibition HJEMLIGHED (homeliness) during the Biennale for Crafts and Design 2015 in Copenhagen. Nine craftsmen, designers, architects and artists explore the home. Crafts are often looked upon as objects which have a specific use and function and have therefore had their natural place within the home. The profession has however changed to incorporate a broader and more reflective artistic approach whose objects and ideas are often presented in the traditional exhibition space or gallery.
In the exhibition the nine craftsmen, designers, architects and artists move into a private apartment in Lavendelstræde 8, in central Copenhagen. For 20 days you were able to walk-in off of the street and explore how the exhibition blends into/with the home. Base Bench was created with the intention of gathering people around the diningtable. In its gravity the bench appears grounded and fixed a permanent element almost establishing itself as a firmly established gathering place.
