      Carl Hansen & Son



        Poul Kjærholm created the PK52A Student Desk by bringing wood and steel together in a clean, light construction. With its pared-down expression the desk is a perfect example of Kjærholm’s great contribution to Danish design.

        Product description

        The PK52A Student Desk was designed by Poul Kjærholm for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, while he was a member of the academic staff.

        The cleverly constructed table highlights Kjærholm’s signature ability to unite traditional craftsmanship and industrial design. The simple shape embodies the lightness and geometric elegance that Kjærholm became renowned for – his pioneering role in designs such as the PK52A Student Desk also helped place Danish design on the world map.

        The PK52A is available in a larger version as the PK52 Professor Desk. Both desks can effortlessly serve as dining tables as their tabletops are reversible, making it possible to use each side for its own purpose. The tables also have an optional drawer as a beautiful storage solution.


        Table top*: veneer, black/grey laminate | Table base: powder-coated steel in black or grey

        *Table top is always reversible, with or without the drawer module.

        **The reversible table top is black on one side and gray on the other side, and comes with a black painted wooden edge.

        ***Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted.

        Drawer module: solid wood, veneer
