Mia Hamborg gives new life to the old Nordic craft tradition of turning wood by adding the colour and playful forms from old painted wooden toys. It’s up to you where you want to put this fine piece of furniture and being truly Nordic and democratic, you can even decide the form, colours and height of the table. & This fine table has one function more important than all others: To create joy.
Mia Hamborg hails from Norway, where an education in advertising and graphic design led to interior design consultancy contracts on the side. Armed with a Bachelor of Arts in furniture design with an emphasis on wood, Hamborg fuses functionality with humour in her endearing designs. With the 'Shuffle' table she revitalises the Nordic craft of turning wood. Dating back to the Viking Age, it involves a foot-powered pole lathe to rotate the wood, using a sharp tool to shape it.
