About this brand: Carl Hansen & Son
Carl Hansen & Son
The founder and first-generation owner, Carl Hansen, was a master cabinetmaker who made furniture to order as well as in small series. He opened his first workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908. The cooperation between Carl Hansen & Son and Hans J. Wegner began in 1949. Wegner, who trained as a master cabinetmaker before he became a designer, worked closely with Holger Hansen and his team of craftsmen to find a way to bring Wegner’s daring designs into series production. The first models, including the legendary CH_24, “The Wishbone Chair”, were introduced in 1950. Since then Carl Hansen & Son have crafted a wide range of other Wegner chairs and tables. Many of these have achieved status of as collectors’ items and design icons in their own right. Today, Carl Hansen & Son is led by Knud Erik Hansen, grandson of the founder. The third-generation company now produces these enduring designs in a new facility according to the strictest quality and environmental standards.

Description

One of the finest examples of Arne Jacobsen's oeuvre is the exclusive Society Table, which he was commissioned to design in 1952 as a gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation's new office in New York. The desk is made of solid wood, veneer, and steel. 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.

- Smaller 140cm size also available on request.

- Drawers are placed on the lefthand side but can be placed on the right by request.

- The desk can be ordered with or without the desktop lamp module.
