CHARLOTTE MRANI

Game table, “The Peace of Home”, massive elm tree with backgammon in elm tree, birch and goat suede. This backgammon table is handcrafted in massive elm tree and birch by fine-box maker Charlotte Mrani. She explains how the current Corona-crisis has been detrimental to her creativity but she tries to also see the silver lining. An example of one such ray of light is that while at home in quarantine, there is suddenly opportunity to spend real quality time with loved ones again. As Mrani noticed during her time living in Egypt: game tables have a special ability to bring people together, be it to enjoy a game of backgammon or playing different card games. These days, it helps to try and use the time to create community and joy in togetherness.

The interior of the table is lined with a deep green goat suede, while the dice and game pieces are in elm tree and birch. Four decks of cards accompany the table and there is also a sideboard for game pieces which ejects during the course of the game. One rolls the dice inside of the table, where there also is room for pens. Width 40cm, length 90cm.

Charlotte Mrani (b. 1969) lives and works in Lomma, Sweden. She is a fine-box maker and has her own workshop. Mrani attended TAU School of Crafts in Malmö, Sweden. Harrods in London carries her boxes.

PRICE: 48 000 SEK.
