Be Inspired by this relaunched society table from Arne Jacobsen which combines steel, veneer, leather & wood. What a beautiful design! Carl Hansen & Son is re-launching this elegant table in close cooperation with Jacobsen’s family. The Society Table was originally manufactured in just a few copies and is now being resurrected in a slightly updated version. 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.
Carl Hansen & Son is re-launching the sophisticated table in close cooperation with Jacobsen’s family, who are thrilled that the unique furniture piece will now reach a wider audience. Jacobsen’s grandson, designer Tobias Jacobsen, who manages his grandfather’s legacy with great dedication, notes:
“The Society Table is an expression of my grandfather’s remarkable ability to make the complex appear very simple. The desk is also an archetypal example of his functionalist approach to the design process, so it is very significant that the Society Table is now being put into production.”
“The desk not only tells a unique story, but is also a distinctive piece of furniture that fits perfectly into the Carl Hansen & Son portfolio of design classics. With strong visual, functional and sculptural qualities, it’s a design that attracts well-deserved attention – and fulfills the high standard of craftsmanship for which Carl Hansen & Son is known,” explains Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son”.
