The Danish manufacturer Hay invited the Bouroullec brothers Ronan and Erwan, to design a collection of furniture for the renovated University of Copenhagen (KUA). The result was the Copenhague Collection, which includes a chair, a bar stool and diverse tables.
Hay and the Bouroullec brothers tried to design furniture for an educational institution, which would clearly fit in our time and fulfil the demands of a University. That’s why the Copenhague Desk is very functional, but without becoming too serious in its expression.
Since both designers wanted to escape from institutional and bureaucratic expressions of traditional furniture in educational institutions with their Copenhague Desk CPH90, and to design objects with bigger originality and a more homely appeal. Hay produces the Copengahue Desk of oak wood, further editions are also available.Also in our blog:
