PK52A Student Desk

The desks lay the groundwork for Kjærholm’s pioneering role in Danish design – and his reputation as one of the world’s leading furniture designers. Kjærholm drew on his experience in cabinetmaking and furniture design to develop a structure that showcased both his deep mastery of steel and wood and the seamless synthesis of traditional craftsmanship and industrial design that became his hallmark. The two tables – the Professor Desk, model number PK52, and the smaller version, the Student Desk, model number PK52A – are highly versatile, serving as desks, dining tables, or simply as attractive worktables in a studio or office. They are also at home in hotel rooms, as well as in other contexts that feature simple, modern elements. Both tables are available with Oregon pine or oak veneer table tops, with an oiled, lacquered or black painted surface, as well as a reversible gray and black laminate tabletop.

The frame is made of black or grey lacquered steel, and with or without a drawer. The PK115 drawer module is available with an oiled, lacquered or black painted oak finish.
