PK52 Professor Desk & Drawer Oak



First designed in 1955 for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Poul Kjærholm’s PK52 Professor Desk and drawer has been revived and reissued by Carl Hansen & Søn, showcasing the designer’s mastery of functionalist furniture. 

Featuring a light and simple design, the PK52 Professor Desk and integrated drawer can be used as a desk, dining table or even a functional work table in design studios for an uncomplicated and elegant aesthetic.

Drawing on his training as a cabinetmaker, Kjærholm's PK52 Professor Desk is accented with an integrated drawer and reversible oak table top, resting on spacers to give it the appearance of hovering above its powder-coated steel frame.

With a premium oak table top in a choice of stained or Danish-oiled finishes, the PK52 Professor Desk would make the ultimate versatile addition to an array of spaces.

Deeply rooted in Danish furniture tradition, Poul Kjærholm’s distinctive work was inspired by artistic movements all over Europe, and is now represented in numerous international museums boasting several prestigious awards. Kjærholm was driven to create a harmony between material and form, which is beautifully reflected in this PK52 Professor Desk.
