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.
Finn Juhl varied the simple concept for different purposes and finishes. Today the table is manufactured in different sizes and available with a veneered table top in teak, oak, walnut, Oregon pine or black linoleum, with matching wooden toes on burnished steel legs. Alternatively, the legs are available in black, orange or light blue.
The table can be ordered with a tray unit with three drawers in a warm or cold range of colors. The tray unit is mounted with brackets, to further emphasize the floating lightness of the table.
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.
