Cabinetmakers' Autumn


The yearly exhibition in Copenhagen
 

Cabinetmakers' Autumn, an exhibition involving 68 furniture manufacturers and designers who jointly implement innovative and craftsmanlike designs, has been taking place in Copenhagen since 1981.
On 21 November the curtain went up for this year's exhibition, which is entitled "Fifty Fifty", a title which is intended to highlight the shared interdependence and responsibility of designers and manufacturers on the often bumpy road towards product development.

“The idea behind FIFTY FIFTY is to return to SE’s (Snedkernes Efterårsudstilling / Cabinetmakers Autumn) original concept, where the responsibility is shared equally by designer and manufacturer,” says, Klaus Brügmann, president of the organisation. “We aim to focus more on the process and to let the outcome speak for itself. The collaboration is scheduled to last six months to enable an extensive work process and the achievement of synergy through the combination of the designer’s creative universe and the manufacturer’s understanding and know-how concerning commercial conditions and materials.”
