Danish furniture company Carl Hansen & Son announced the Society table, which combines steel, veneer, leather and wood. The table was first commissioned in 1952 as a one-off design by the Danish shipyard Burmeister & Wain. It was part of a complete office set to be given to the American-Scandinavian Foundation in New York, an organization that promotes cultural and educational exchange between the U.S. and Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. The desk, originally manufactured in just a few copies, is being resurrected in a slightly updated version.
The Society table by Arne Jacobsen will be available starting this September.
