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 belong in our time while still fulfilling the demands of a University. Therefore the Copenhague Desk is very functional, but without being too serious in its expression.
Both designers wanted to move away from the institutional and bureaucratic look of traditional furniture in educational institutions. With their Copenhague Desk CPH90, they designed a unique object with a homely touch. Hay produces the Copengahue Desk out of oak wood, but other editions are also available.
