This large writing desk was designed by Preben Juhl Fabricius and Jorgen Kastholm in the sixties.
The 2 Danish designers met each other in the 50s but start only working together in the 60s. While Fabricius was an educated cabinetmaker, it was with Kastholm’s unique experience as a blacksmith that the obvious and usual choice of material would be steel.
Allthough the two designers have individually created some interesting pieces, it is in pair that they have achieved their greatest succes, such as the FK-196 writing desk.
This glass and flat steel table is was designed by Preben Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007). Together they started a design studio, Fabricius & Kastholm in 1961. These two Danish designers focussed on creating timeless functional designs that were simple and had the aesthetic of minimalism. Fabricius and Kastholm at first were creating pieces with leather, glass, or steel; they found inspiration in the sturdiness of Scandinavian designs in the sixties. In 1969, the pair was awarded the German Gute Form prize for the famous FK 87 Grasshopper Chair and the FK armchairs.
This Danish minimalistic coffeetable in light oak was designed by Hans J. Wegner in the 60s. Hans J. Wegner was one of the great Danes who had his furniture manufactured by Andres Tuck in Denmark for a long period. In fact Andreas Tuck’s most notable designer was Hans J. Wegner ( 1914-2007). This vintage coffeetable is in very good condition, no damages at all.
Of the furniture and interior designers who began to make their talents visible in the 1960s, Warren Platner was among the less flamboyant. Nevertheless, he earned for himself an international reputation for elegant understatement, and the steel wire furniture he designed for Knoll has become an icon of ’60s modernism.
