This table was originally made for “The Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition” in Copenhagen in 2004. The curved legs and the cloud-shaped table top is reminiscent of Art Nouveau style, but with its simplified expression and clean lines, the table may be part of a modern decor.
A very special tabletop was designed for this furniture. The specially selected pieces of wood that the tabletop is made of, are joined in curved lines that follow the wood’s unique grain pattern. This gives it a very organic feel, almost as if the top was made from one single piece of wood. It is a very time consuming method that requires a special routing technique and careful selection of the wood, but the end result is unmistakably different. Each table is entirely unique.
A special logo adorns Ask Emil Skovgaard's exclusive furniture. It is made of small pieces of wood that are glued together, rounded and fitted into the furniture at a select location. As shown here on the leg of `Spider` the logo creates a subtle detail.
All the pieces in the table frame are joined using visible mortise and tenon joints with a "loose" tenon that connects the pieces. The ”loose” tenon is made of African Padauk, which has a beautiful descrete red color. These red tenons add yet another subtle detail to the table.
