The Bovirke table, which House of Finn Juhl today has been given special permission to name the Bovirke Table, was presented at the exhibition "New Home" in Copenhagen in 1948. The table was part of Bovirke's stand, which was entirely carried out by Finn Juhl. The owner of Bovirke Poul H. Lund was the first person to see the advantages of manufacturing Finn Juhl's furniture on a more industrial level. Light, quality furniture that was adapted to the modern lifestyle of the time, but with a special idiom. At the exhibition in 1948, the 46 Chair, 46 Sofa and the Eye Table were also showcased – Furniture pieces, which are all in production at House of Finn Juhl today.
Finn Juhl had the ability to make functionalism unite with aesthetics, which in particular applies to this simple and elegant, extendable table. The wave-shaped cross bar allows you to move your legs freely under the table. At the same time, the table is incredibly practical, because the extension leaves can be stored away inside the table. When the leaves are to be used, the split table top smoothly slides open thanks to the clever pine mechanism.
The Bovirke table can be ordered with a solid top (without leaves and seamless top). Alternatively it can be ordered in an extension version with either veneer or solid leaves.
As one of the leading figures in twentieth century furniture design, Finn Juhl is responsible for introducing North America to the Danish Modern movement through his work on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Originally trained as an architect, he began creating furniture for himself in the 1930's and soon gained widespread recognition for his organic forms and expressive treatment of wood, often taking the material past the limits of what was thought possible. Thinking with the mindset of a sculptor, his ambition was to design furniture with movement and life.
