Nyhavn Desk


During his career, Finn Juhl designed a series of different tables with almost invisible legs in burnished or painted steel with wooden toes. In this way, he introduced an almost floating lightness into his designs.

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.

The Nyhavn drawer is not included in the price.
