An Hom(m)age to local production

Matti Carlson’s table line combines Italian elegance with Swedish craftsmanship.

Carlson values local raw materials and production when he designs furniture to last for generations. In 2018, he launched side table Hommage, made of massive smoked Swedish oak, letting the round circle shape of its legs act as a focal point. Inspired by Italy of the sixties, the wood turned legs adds a pattern to the tabletop surface and the darkening process of the wood creates a warm depth of colour in the wood.

Starting this fall, it’ll be manufactured in Sweden by Tre Sekel carpentry, together with dining table Hommage Grande, which was presented at the beginning of this year. It was also nominated to Stockholm Furniture Fair’s Born Classic Award, highlighting future classics, with the following motivation: ”Rooting from the Swedish forests, designer Matti Carlson has created a table based on the basic geometric shapes. Refined details and a strong, monumental aesthetic, together with excellent cabinetwork, brings the table into the future.”
