The Danish manufacturer Hay invited the designer brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to create a collection for the re-designed University of Copenhagen (KUA). The result is the Copenhague Series, which consists of a chair, a bar stool and diverse tables.
Hay and the Bouroullecs tried to design furniture for an educational institution, which, with its shape and identity clearly belongs to our time and meets the demands of a University. That’s the reason why the Copenhague Round Table, which is available as a dining table and as a side table is very functional, but without becoming too serious in its expression.
Both designers wanted to free the Copenhague Round Table CPH20 from the expression of traditional institutional and bureaucratic furniture in educational institutions and they wanted to design objects with more originality and a more homely appeal. Hay produces the Copenhague Round Table from oak. Further editions are available on demand.
