Finn Juhl, the master of Danish Modern, originally designed the small walnut and brass Table Bench in 1953 after having been inspired by the work of American designers he encountered.
Exquisitely designed, the Table Bench formed part of the large-scale Design in Scandinavia show, an exhibition curated by Finn Juhl himself that travelled across North American between 1954 and 1957, and was attended by approximately 650,000 visitors.
Equally suited to use as a coffee table, sideboard, bench and display unit, the Table Bench’s top is expertly crafted from walnut and finished elegant matte polished brass edging. Resting on black steel legs with feet finished in matching walnut, the Table Bench would lend a design edge to any space.
The first Danish furniture designer to achieve international recognition, Finn Juhl is seen by many as the master of Danish Modern. A self-taught designer, he originally studied to become an architect but worked with the mindset of a sculptor when creating his designs. Rather than thinking in terms of practicality, Finn Juhl broke free from the constraints of conventional working methods to create truly innovative designs.
