Found on the edge of Copenhagen’s coastline is a creative art studio consciously choosing to disregard the notion of limits as it pertains to form and material. Designer Pernille Snedker Hansen first made her mark on the industry with the creation of her marbleised patterns, which she boldly parlayed onto parquet floors (leaving nearly everyone halted in their tracks). The demand for her fiercely hued designs spread like wildfire, and Hansen swiftly made the transition to works on paper where she wowed again with loose interpretations of psychedelic tree rings and other abstracts. Now, Snedker Studios is set to debut a highly anticipated furniture collection, and because one line of furnishings simply wouldn’t be enough, Hansen created distinct surfaces conveyed on two entirely different furniture frames.

Let’s start with the "Never the Same" collection: within this series Hansen’s marbleised motif blankets the surface of naked blonde wood tables. Each piece is finished with soft round edges courtesy of Danish carpenter Karsten Lauritzen, who Hansen enlisted for the project. Due to the nature of this process no two tables are exactly alike – hence the name. "My works on wood are inspired by the natural patterns inherent in the grain," notes the Dutch designer. "I want to celebrate its beauty and make each piece stand out independently."
