Finn Juhl designed a diverse range of furniture with frames of steel pipe during his working life.
This was also the theme of the work tables for his first studio at Nyhavn 33, Copenhagen. As Finn Finn Juhl in 1957 moved the studio to Sølvgade 38, these tables were still in use.
We have decided to relaunch this simple and very stable table originally made of burnished steel tabletops linoleum or plywood. Frames and toes match in either walnut, teak or oak.
The cabinet was designed in 1953 as an addition to the Nyhavn Table from 1945 and had previously been produced by the firm BOVIRKE. The drawer cabinet is now relaunched by ONECOLLECTION.
The Drawer Cabinet with three coloured trays hangs like a floating, individual element under the light steel construction of the Nyhavn Table. This reflects Finn Juhl’s design philosophy of separating the elements to create visual lightness. His separation of the support and the supported is seen in many of his chairs – e.g. the “45-Chair” is another example of this.

Around 1950 Finn Juhl was inspired by the simple design of his American colleagues – in particular Charles Eames, and having sworn by wood as his favourite material for years, he creates a range of furniture in steel with more simplicity. The Nyhavn Dining Table is an example of this – and despite its simple exterior – the table is quite special and has lots of character thanks to Finn Juhl´s sense of detail and functionality.
The Nyhavn Dining Table is with two leaves in veneered oiled oak, walnut or teak. Alternatively, the table can be supplied in black linoleum. The frame is in burnished or painted steel tube frame in orange, light blue or black, with toes in the respective type of Wood. A special Mount makes it possible to either remove the leaves or let them hang vertically down at both ends.
The Table measures 170 x 85 cm, with two leaves 278 x 85 cm.
