3,000 Slats of Wood Form Maze-Like Fence in Copenhagen

This unique, temporary wooden pavilion seems like the perfect place to wander through and get lost in a daydream. Designed by Amsterdam-based firm FABRIC, Trylletromler is a freestanding fence structure that creates an illusion of motion throughout the King's Garden in Copenhagen.

The title of the piece, Trylletromler, is based off of the Danish word for the zoetrope, a 19th century device that activates an impression of movement within a still image. The designers, Eric Frijters and Olv Klijn, developed the flowing concept by joining ten perfect circles together into a path of maze-like turns and curves. According to the project statement, Frijters and Klijn aimed to address three ideas: a notion of inside and outside, a maze that is paradoxically transparent, and the illusion of motion.

The light and airy design is formed out of 3,000 pieces of standard, untreated Nordic wood joined together with an irregular pattern of wedges. Viewers can see through the slatted fence and easily navigate the space to enjoy views of the rose garden, the castle, existing tree lines, and nearby water.
