Library Table


The pure lines and open construction are emblematic of his approach to designs driven by function. Where every detail has a precise purpose that correlates to its use. By raising and securing the hinged leaves at either end, the length of the table could be doubled. When not in use, the hinged leaves fold down to hang vertically. Resulting in a clean, rectangular profile of a practical, multi-purpose design crafted in oak. The concept was inspired by the English gate-leg table dating back to the Baroque period. But it was Mogensen’s refined visual expression and elimination of anything unnecessary, which contributed to its iconic status.
