This is classic Danish craftsmanship offering simple and modest functionality in solid wood.

As a contra experiment, this desk is homage to pure traditional fine woodwork. Although the thorough and dedicated attention of a skilled cabinetmaker is required in executing the work on this desk, the job can be done with quite simple and trivial tools. This is not a search for something new or extraordinary. This is a result of the simple and strong will to do something genuine and honest.
Hans J. Wegner designed this desk for Andreas Tuck in 1955. PP Møbler took over production in 1972.

As goes for all solid wood tables from PP Møbler the tabletop is always made only of wood from the same tree. Though no two tabletops ever look the same, this simple principle ensures the most even patina and in general the most harmonic and beautiful surface.

The tabletop consists of a number of boards each cut as wide as possible. As each piece of wood is different, we accept that the boards have to be cut in individual width. In respect of the solid wood we wish to let it speak its own language of beauty in as big dimensions as allowed by the tree.

The two principles of one-tabletop-of-one-tree and boards-of-individual-width are quality trademarks conceived by the enthusiastic craftsmen of PP Møbler solely on their own initiative.
HANS J. WEGNER
