Dinesen has introduced the Dinesen Collection, a range of timeless wood furniture and interior objects designed to activate the senses through aesthetic sustainability. Specialising in quality wooden planks since 1898, Dinesen’s interior projects have featured numerous times on TDC over the years, and I love seeing the versatility of their work which ranges from flooring through to other interior elements. The new collection consists of eight products that celebrate the iconic Dinesen plank, all with a coherent expression born from a passion for meaningful design solutions.
Dinesen Collection is created by the niche studio Design Studies. Founded by Hans Peter Dinesen and Mikkel Vestergaard, they explore and discover new possibilities in nature’s materials through design and production.
“The goal is always to enrich life for the people who shape their lives around the furniture. This collection is a manifestation of how design can provide a setting for life that brings people together and also brings us closer to nature and enhances our well-being.” — Hans Peter Dinesen, Design Studies
DS001 Table and DS101 Bench
The inspiration behind the Dinesen Collection stems from the drying process that the wood undergoes on its way to becoming an iconic Dinesen plank. When the timber arrives at the sawmill it is cut, and the planks are stacked with cubic spacers in between to allow the air to circulate freely. These stacked planks are a recurring design feature throughout the collection, showing a distinct connection to the brand’s DNA.
The interior scent, DD-2, which is also a part of Dinesen Collection, is developed by artist and researcher of smell, Sissel Tolaas, in collaboration with architecture and design firm Studio Pneuma.

The Dinesen collection includes a range of Bricks made from made of surplus wood from Dinesen’s own production. These can be used as decorative objects, as cutting or serving boards, or as platforms for displaying decorative or interesting objects in your home. The Furniture Planks come in four lengths, in a choice of Oak and Douglas and a variety of finishes. Perfect for a range of creative solutions, the desk shown below was created with planks and the Stand.
