Introducing The Home of Hans Bølling: an exhibition in homage to one of the Danish Modern era’s greatest designers. The exhibition recreated Bølling’s home, living room, and study, presenting a collection of memorabilia and sketches that explored his iconic spirit, curiosity, and creativity.

Now in his 90s, Hans Bølling has been developing the three pieces at his home north of Copenhagen over several years, refining the designs through a series of sketches and models until achieving the final product.

The exhibition featured a lounge chair alongside two other new Bølling designs – a stool and a coffee table, both inspired by his classic Tray Table design from 1963. The three furniture pieces have been crafted from three under-used American hardwood species, selected for their combination of sustainability, durability, and textured beauty: red oak, cherry, and maple.

“I am extremely proud to be able to present three new pieces of furniture that I feel represent my work. I want to convey pure architectural lines and details in my design, which together create human connections and a breeding ground for joy and good living.”
– Hans Bølling

The exhibition was curated by architect and artist Sara Martinsen, who shares Bølling’s passion for natural materials and focuses on the human connection to these.

The furniture was created in collaboration with AHEC, from sustainable American hardwood which places redwood, cherry and maple in an inspiring new context and showcases their natural hues and characteristics.
