Poul Kjaerholm designed the Student desk and Professor desk in 1955 for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The two desks are very important in Poul Kjaerholm's career and mark the start of Kjaerholm's reputation as one of the world's leading furniture designers.
Clearly visible in the designs are Kjaerholm's great understanding of steel and wood and the marriage of traditional craftsmanship and industrial design that became his hallmark. The Student desk and Professor desk are very versatile and can be used as desks, dining tables or work tables.
