The PK52A Student Desk was designed by Poul Kjaerholm for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, while he was a member of the academic staff.
The cleverly constructed table highlights Kjaerholm's signature ability to unite traditional craftsmanship and industrial design. The simple shape embodies the lightness and geometric elegance that Kjaerholm 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.
