The VOID series is an investigation into the relationship between function, shape, craft and art.
On some surfaces, shape playfully succumbs to functionality, on others, the exploration of the material seems to win. In VOID, the magnificent ash and the organic shapes battle function in the most beautiful and thought-provoking way. To Egeværk, the VOID series is a love song to the most beautiful wood in the world; the dying Danish ash. VOID also pays tribute to the process of creating by hand. The very process that makes Egeværk tick.
VOID is carved out of an ash monolith using spokeshaves, rasps, wood chisels, and a mallet. We imagine that the original size and shape of the huge block of wood will always linger discreetly in the room.
