Nyhavn Desk

During his career, Finn Juhl designed a series of different tables with almost invisible legs in stained or painted steel with wooden toes. In this way, he introduced an almost floating lightness to his designs.

 

When he established his first studio at the exclusive address of 33 Nyhavn in central Copenhagen in 1945, he designed a very simple desk with stained steel legs, which came to shape his designs of furniture and inventory during the 1950’s. When Finn Juhl moved his studio to 38 Sølvgade in 1957, these same tables were still used.

 

Finn Juhl varied the simple concept for different purposes and finishes. Today the table is manufactured in two different sizes available in either black lino or teak, oak or walnut veneer table top with matching wooden toes on burnished steel legs.

 

The table can also be ordered with a drawer unit with three coloured trays in yellow/red or blue colours mounted with brackets, to furthermore emphasize the floating lightness of the table.

Finn Juhl

DENMARK (1912-1989)

Danish architect Finn Juhl (1912–1989) is regarded as one of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century. He was a pioneer figure within Danish furniture design and the Danish Modern movement. Being commissioned to furnish one of the larger delegates rooms at the UN building in New York, and being represented at the Museum of Modern Art, made him well known outside of Denmark early on. His many contacts led to collaboration with the American furniture industry making his furniture among the first to make Danish Modern an international phenomenon. Today, Finn Juhl’s furniture are seen in private and public places, as well as museums, around the world.
