Slagbaenk by Rasmus B. Fex

Presented at imm Cologne 2013 on the occasion of the D3 ContestSlagbaenk is a conceptual kitcen bench/ wall bench (slagbaenk) designed by Rasmus B. Fex – graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art School of Design (KADK) 2012th – living in the borderland between art and design. It is a piece of furniture art craft that is conceptual as well as highly functional.

The traditional slagbænk holds a firm place in Scandinavian furniture history. Its concept has remained unchanged over the last 100 years. It is a multifunctional piece of furniture that must offer a variety of everyday functions which makes it an interesting object. One object provides the functions of three; the bench where we sit along the kitchen table, the coffin where we store our stuff and the daybed on which we rest. It adapts to the needs of a home as a kind of a furniture swiss-knife.

Slagbaenk is a simple concept five planks set in the spread between two chairs. A wider plank is placed on top of the chairs, providing both seating and storage lid. The planks can vary in length, adopting to the wished length of the bench. Slagbaenk is part of Art with function – Design without.
