Carl Hansen & Søn is now bringing Arne Jacobsen’s unique writing desk, the Society Table, into public view. The table was designed in 1952 as a gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation in New York.
Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen is synonymous with modern Danish design. One of the finest examples of his oeuvre is the exclusive Society Table, which Jacobsen was commissioned to design in 1952 as a
gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation’s new office in New York. Carl Hansen & Søn is now introducing Jacobsen’s visionary design, making it accessible to design enthusiasts worldwide.
The desk is made of solid wood, veneer, and steel. The tabletop is covered with fine-structured leather, the drawer unit combines wood and veneer, and the table shelf – with two compartments that fit up to A4 and M65 envelopes – is made of wood with glass sides. The table features an integrated, brushed, stainless-steel desk lamp. Jacobsen designed all of the elements, including the conical lamp that completes the modernistic look.
The Society Table will be in stores from May 2018.
