Around 1950 Finn Juhl was inspired by the simple design of his American colleagues – in particular Charles Eames, and having sworn by wood as his favourite material for years, he creates a range of furniture in steel with more simplicity. The Nyhavn Dining Table is an example of this – and despite its simple exterior – the table is quite special and has lots of character thanks to Finn Juhl´s sense of detail and functionality.
The Nyhavn Dining Table was Finn Juhl´s response to the criticism of his inspiration with the free sculptural art and its exclusivity.
