Description/

Hans J. Wegner achieved international recognition for his many chairs, yet his tables are just as expressive, artistic and thoroughly designed. Named the Architect’s Desk, the present desk is one of Wegner’s most grandiose and accomplished pieces. It is characterized by a sound, powerful presence and a strong graphic outline. The design is reminiscent of 17th-Century Spanish tables with slanted legs and metal struts. In Wegner’s version, however, the combination of angled legs held in place by diagonal metal struts not only testifies to his refined sense of organic shapes, but also to the subtle and expressive correlations between different materials, which so often characterize Wegner’s work. The tabletop and drawers are in teak, the legs in oak and the expert craftsmanship is executed by master cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen.

Materials: Teak, oak and brass.
