Around 1950 Finn Juhl was inspired by the simple design of his American colleagues – in particular Charles Eames, and having sworn by wood as his favourite material for years, he creates a range of furniture in steel with more simplicity. The Nyhavn Dining Table is an example of this – and despite its simple exterior – the table is quite special and has lots of character thanks to Finn Juhl's sense of detail and functionality.
The Nyhavn Dining Table is with two leaves in veneered oiled oak, walnut or teak. Alternatively, the table can be supplied in black linoleum. The frame is in burnished or painted steel tube frame in orange, light blue or black, with toes in the respective type of Wood. A special Mount makes it possible to either remove the leaves or let them hang vertically down at both ends.
The Nyhavn Dining Table was Finn Juhls response to the criticism of his inspiration with the free sculptural art and its exclusivity.
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.
