AJ52 Society desk by Arne Jacobsen for Carl Hansen

Originally designed as a gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation's New York office in 1952, Carl Hansen has launched the AJ52 desk. A unique and modern design, the table features a desk, lamp, table shelf and drawers in an impressive single structure. 

The desk is made of solid wood, veneer and steel, with the tabletop covered with a fine-structured leather. The wooden shelf features two compartments with glass sides and an integrated stainless-steel lamp. Mounted on the desk's underside is a drawer unit suspended by metal tubes. The thoughtfully designed desk maintains an overall visual lightness with its slim and exposed detailing. 

Drawers can be mounted on the left or right side of the table. Drawers and feet come in lacquered oak, oiled oak, white oiled oak, black lacquered oak, lacquered walnut or oiled walnut. 

Table top cover available in Freza leather Black 2002 or Brown 2068 leather. Refer to the pdf in the download section for more details.

Shelf with integrated lamp module is optional. 

The desk comes in two sizes.
