Kaufmann Table 1945

The Kaufmann Table was originally designed for Finn Juhl’s own private home, just like many other of his iconic designs. The table is in a league of its own with an unusually refined edge profile which lends it the illusion that the large table top almost floats like a wing above the elegant frame. 

Juhl deliberately worked with a mix of wooden materials. A dark table top in walnut and a lighter frame in oak very clearly separates the carried and the carrying elements. The table’s many design details have both a practical and a visual function.

About the Kaufmann Table

The brass detail on the crossbar visually gives the table an exclusive look and at the same time protects the wood against shoe polish - if one should be tempted to rest one’s legs on it. 

The table is manufactured in walnut and oak, and almost entirely crafted by hand. Since the table was never given a name by Juhl himself, Onecollection decided to dedicate it to Juhl’slifelong friend, the previous director at MoMa, Edgar Kaufmann Jr., who “dis- covered” Finn Juhl and became instrumental in launching his international career.
