The Hk furniture line was inspired on a traditional method of construction, the roll up solid wooden doors. This system was widely used in the 50s-60s archive furniture, which inspired us to use this foundation in our design. The solid wooden slats bring movement to a static piece, hand out dynamism and a unique form of expression. Albiet, we didn’t want to use this in a conventional manner, we desired to create something innovative with this system. This is how the idea of applying this method as a door and as covering simultaneously, like a skin, was generated. Therefor, it was the construction method that guided and built the Hk.
