On the 3rd of August the new opening of the Schotten & Hansen Showroom took place at Glouchester Road in Wanchai. In front of 70 selected guests Torben Hansen and Stefan Knopp presented their unique way of working with wood under the theme “Meet the Masters”.
Stefan Knopp demonstrated on two bowls and on a small side table how he refines his furniture with a combustion process. Afterwards Torben Hansen showed how to use pigments to make the fine wood structures more visible and how the Schotten & Hansen finish can provide a unique protection to these unique pieces.
The items which were refined in this demonstration were auctioned among the present guests for a good purpose. Mike Stanley, the Chief Editor of the renowned magazine “PRC” (Pacific Rim Construction), headed this auction.
This event was rounded off by a lecture by Bernhard Heinloth, CEO of Schotten & Hansen, and Ego Leung of ARCHITECTUREPUBLIC, the designer of the new Showroom, on the topic of Wood Design and the value of products.
