Poul Henningsen explored the idea there should be a clear distinction between what is being carried, and what is carrying. This can be seen with each of his table designs, which have a characteristic ‘floating’ top with supporting legs that are carefully crafted to be aesthetically beautiful. PH’s designs include lounge, dining, workspace, and other functions, and each is as fresh and thoughtfully composed as ever.
The 1937 PH Dining Table is simple and elegant, carried by its airy and light steel pipe legs. The construction and composition of materials elegantly combine in this design, underscoring the table’s lightness regardless of size. Another beautiful design, the PH Circle Table, is a triumph of aesthetic design and functionality; it is a piece of furniture that will be sought after in this and future generations. With a design dating from the 1930s, the PH Circle Table with its beautiful and elegant legs has a completely contemporary and modern finish and look.
A perfect complement to the living space, the PH Lounge Table was designed by Poul Henningsen in 1932. Its curved steel form shares the same expression and a corresponding design with the PH Pope Chair and PH Armchair.
Inspired by his travels to Canada in the early 1950s, Poul Henningsen used the handle of an axe as a feature for the PH Axe Table. A symbol of strength, beauty and durability, the humble axe handle has been reimagined as a support for the table surface which is equally at home in the modern home, corporate environment, or public space designed for contemporary living.
