Finn Juhl Nyhavn Desk and Tray Unit | House Of Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl designed a diverse range of furniture with frames of steel pipe during his working life. This was also the theme of the work tables for his first studio at Nyhavn 33, Copenhagen. When Finn Juhl moved the studio to Sølvgade 38 in 1957, these tables were still in use.

With three coloured trays, the Nyhavn Tray Unit hangs like a floating, individual element under the light steel construction of the Nyhavn Desk. This reflects Finn Juhl’s design philosophy of separating elements to create visual lightness.

As with the FJ Sideboard, the coloured trays correspond to Goethe’s famous colour circle and come in a yellow / red scale and a blue scale. The cabinet is available in walnut, teak, Oregon pine or oak. Suspension fittings are included in burnished steel.

Materials: Burnished or painted steel frame in black, orange or light blue. Tabletop in black linoleum, walnut, teak, Oregon pine or oak veneered plywood. Frames and feet match in either walnut, teak, Oregon pine or oak.
