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

When Finn Juhl designed the Nyhavn Desk he was inspired by the simplistic designs of his American counterparts, in particular Charles Eames. However, his sense of functionality and detail is what adds real character to this piece.
