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 into 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 furniture design during the 1950s. When Finn Juhl moved his studio to 38 Sølvgade in 1957, these same tables were still used.

ABOUT THE NYHAVN DESK

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

The table can be ordered with a drawer unit with three colored trays in yellow/red or blue colors mounted with brackets, to further emphasize the floating lightness of the table.
