aj52 society table

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1952
Stainless steel, solid wood, veneer, leather
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

A timeless example of the Danish architect's functionalist approach to design, Arne Jacobsen's AJ52 Society Table was conceived in 1952, at the peak of his career. Jacobsen harnessed new techniques and materials to create the slender writing desk, which features a fine-structured leather top that wraps tightly around a tubular metal frame.

A conical desk lamp in brushed stainless steel is a seamless extension of the design, as is the glass-fronted, wood-and-veneer letter compartment. Beneath the table, a six-drawer unit, also in wood and veneer, is suspended from fine metal tubes - a feature that, together with the slim frame and solid-wood feet, contributes to the desk's air of lightness.

The AJ52 Society Table is available in two sizes, and with or without the tabletop compartment and desk lamp. The six-drawer unit can be mounted beneath the left or righthand side of the table; choose from solid oak, walnut or black-painted oak drawers and matching feet.

AJ52 only comes in Freja leather black 2002 or brown 2068 top. The feet and drawers always come in the same type of wood and surface treatment. Oak has clearly visible wood structure when painted. The lamp comes with an E26/E27 socket depending on country.
