Product Description

The Society Desk unites some of design's most iconic movements in one striking product. Originally designed in 1952 by legendary Danish architect Arne Jacobsen, it pairs the expressive simplicity of the Bauhaus with the sculptural refinement of functionalism to create a timeless modern desk. Initially commissioned as a present for the American-Scandinavian society, it has long garnered attention as one of Jacobsen's finest pieces and has been recently brought back into production by luxury Danish brand, Carl Hansen & Son.

About Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen is widely recognised as one of the most influential designers of all time. Born in 1907 in Denmark, Jacobsen is best known for his outstanding contributions to mid century furnishing and modernist architecture. But it was the sinuous curves of his futuristic designs The Egg™ and The Swan™ that would propel him into design legend. Effortlessly graceful and yet somehow avant-garde, his designs mastered the ultimate magic trick of being somehow classic and contemporary, all at the same time. Entrusted with prestigious task of designing The Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, his designs have enthralled artists of all kind for over a century.
