Cutter turns twenty

Imagine that! Skageraks Cutter bench turns twenty. Cutter was designed by the Danish furniture designer Niels Hvass for the exhibition Walk the Plank in 1999 and subsequently evolved into a series for the hallway. Like any good design Cutter is also relevant in other private or public settings, and today the Cutter bench is found in museums all over the world – in Denmark at Trapholt in Kolding and Utzon Center in Aalborg.

Cutter is simple, versatile and practical and cuts a striking figure with its crenelated body. On the occasion of its twentieth birthday we have now launched Cutter in a deep red that enhances the graphic and charming character of the bench while emphasizing its durable expression.

Twenty limited editions of the Cutter Jubilee Bench will be available from October.

”The idea behind the Cutter bench is the coherent progression of the frame and the stringent repetition of the slats, which create an iconic whole and make Cutter a suitable and eye-catching addition to any room” - Niels Hvass.
