Bovirke table 1948
The 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.
About the Bovirke Table
The curved cross bar aligns with Finn Juhl's other organic designs and fits perfectly with, for instance, the 46 Chair and the Reading Chair. One of Finn Juhl's many design characteristics was to combine two types of wood, thereby distinguishing the elements from each other and achieving visual lightness. The Bovirke Table can be ordered either completely in oak or walnut or with the frame in oak and the top in walnut.
The table is made from solid wood and the extension leaves are available in either solid wood or veneer. Without the extension leaves the table fits 4-6 people, while it fits up to 10 people with the extension leaves in use. The table is also available in a non-extendable version. The table is manufactured at House of Finn Juhl's own workshop in Ringkøbing, Denmark.
