Student desk, 1955

Student desk by Poul Kjaerholm for Carl Hansen + Son.

Poul Kjaerholm designed the Student desk and Professor desk in 1955 for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The two desks are very important in Poul Kjaerholm's career and mark the start of Kjaerholm's reputation as one of the world's leading furniture designers. 

Clearly visible in the designs are Kjaerholm's great understanding of steel and wood and the marriage of traditional craftsmanship and industrial design that became his hallmark. The Student desk and Professor desk are very versatile and can be used as desks, dining tables or work tables.

Available in two sizes - the Student desk is a smaller version of the Professor desk.

Carl Hansen opened his furniture workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908 and soon became known for the high quality of his work.

In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture – including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm’s hallmark – and continues to set it apart today.
