Islets Side Table

By Maria Bruun , 2020

The Islets Table series is a precise design with a strong identity, based on a simple construction, where details are kept to a minimum. It’s an approach that reflects the sculptural minimalism of Danish designer Maria Bruun, who seeks a balance between a light feeling in the expression and pieces with a strong, assertive presence.

About The Collection


Fredericia introduces Complements – A new line of material-driven pieces conceived as collector’s items to complement our portfolio.

Complements is a new collection of designs that join our main collection of furniture. A line of collectibles rooted in our passion for materiality comprised of functional pieces with aesthetic qualities that are equally appealing as decorative elements. From objects and small functional furniture to hidden gems from our archives with a renewed relevance.

With Complements, we expand on our expertise with materiality to encompass a range of accessories and furnishings that - together with our line of furniture - create a look and feel for an entire interior or concept.

Drawing on our legacy of working with wood and leather, we’ve explored other materials with textures, colours and compositions that bring an extra dimension to the atmosphere. The result is a celebration of materiality in well-considered concepts that are refined, authentic, inviting and crafted to last.

We’re always open to designers, where we feel a strong connection with their work and a mutual mindset. For Complements, we’ve engaged with the next wave of new talent in Denmark and abroad. Both new and established names, who share our affinity for honest materials and purposeful design.

Complements remains true to our design heritage at Fredericia while staying in tune with the world at large. Each piece is distinctive, yet they all reflect our pioneering spirit to create essentials with presence and permanence.

Collectibles to cherish now – and for generations to come.

Designer

Danish designer Maria Bruun creates unique experiences in form and space. Much like a set designer, early in her creative process she visualises her ideas in a spatial context in relation to its surroundings. An approach that contributes to her carefully considered, sculptural designs that are a pleasure to both use and behold.

Bruun’s work often consists of a series of pieces involving familiar materials in new constellations with a unique sense of tactility and scale, to establish an interplay between recognition and renewal. Her profound love of wood and its effect on us as humans is a passion she shares with Fredericia, along with our strong connection between the past and the future. Curiosity and respect are her guide in constructing and meticulously refining a shape while honouring the natural structure of wood. She explores the parameters of a variety of materials, including metal and glass, to bring an innovative approach to classic craftsmanship techniques in her close dialogue with skilled artisans.

Bruun is the recipient of several awards and recognitions, such Emerging Talent of the Year by the Danish Arts Foundation, her nomination by Dezeen as ‘Emerging Designer of the Year’ and the Danish Design Award for Best Design of the Year, among others .
