Carl Hansen & Søn



Arne Jacobsen designed the elegant AJ52 Society Table for the American-Scandinavian Foundation's new office in New York in 1952. Since then, this uncompromisingly modern desk has become a favorite of discerning design enthusiasts.

Designed by  Arne Jacobsen


The AJ52 Society Table by  Arne Jacobsen  is a distinctive piece featuring a desk, lamp, table shelf and drawers in one seemingly floating piece. It brilliantly showcases Jacobsen's ability to make the complex appear simple.

The desk is made of solid wood, veneer and steel and the tabletop is covered with fine-structured leather that opens at the corners to expose the legs. The wooden shelf has two compartments with glass sides and the integrated lamp is made in brushed stainless-steel. Attached with four metal tubes, the drawer unit appears suspended beneath the table, adding to the overall impression of lightness. The elements create a sophisticated, modern and elegant work desk.

The AJ52 Society Table is available in two sizes and the six-drawer unit can be mounted on either side of the desk. The shelf and integrated lamp are optional.
