We’ve often heard that great ideas come in small packages. Specifically, the small and exquisite examples of furniture in the touring exhibition entitled “Petit”, which is currently on display at the House of Denmark in the French capital until early April.

This event, held every year in Denmark, is endorsed by the society and members of the Cabinetmakers Association in the Salon d’Automne of the Nordic country, bringing together a select group of 45 proposals from designers and creators, in which careful consideration, meticulous work, and professional craftsmanship are the hallmarks.

To mark the occasion, the director of the Salon d’Automne exhibition commissioned its members, over 83 in number, to create a small item, essentially a piece of furniture, with measurements not exceeding 60 x 60cm. This premise, which guides the essence of the whole exhibition in its particularity, ranges from occasional furniture to chairs, tables, dressers and more complex pieces with no specific purpose. So curious a topic is equally well complemented by the stunning backdrop created by the studio Norm Architects.
