Turn represents the epitome of beautiful, functional craftsmanship.
Mads Johansen’s Turn is a convertible table in keeping with Johansen’s penchant for minimalist design and a respect for natural materials. Capable of sitting underneath the taller table or ‘turning’ out to reveal an elegant graduating form. Like so much of Mads Johansen’s work, Turn is informed by a love of structural engineering and is adaptable to any space. The quarter-sawn timber finish reveals an additional lovely grain and texture.

Manufactured by Snedkergaarden, who’s methods illuminate the structure, colour and grain of the natural materials in every piece, Great Dane’s ongoing collaboration with Snedkergaarden is the epitome of a shared vision rooted in careful craft, prime quality and enduring design intent.
