The Workshop

Work in the upholstery workshop by upholsterer Jon Svarth ranges from the development of prototypes and the production of new pieces of furniture to the renovation of old furniture. Just as there is new furniture to develop, it is also meaningful to repair and reuse with respect for materials and resources.

When the cabinetmakers Kim Berchon Nielsen and Gustav Sandegård are busy in the workshop, you are welcome to have a look and see them at work. It is important to be able to get up close in order to really understand the many procedures which all items of furniture must go through before they are finished and ready for use. In the assembly workshop, a Knud Holscher cabinet in acrylic gets the final touch and finish.

In the machine workshop, timber is cut and made ready for new furniture models. All the templates for the many elements that make up the base frame of the Dan Svarth sofa hang on the wall.
