Finn Juhl experienced an international breakthrough in the USA during the early 1950s. He subsequently designed a whole range of furniture with simple metal pipe frames, inspired by the American designers he had come across.
The Table Bench was part of this line and was featured as part of the large-scale exhibition called Design in Scandinavia that travelled across North America, curated by Finn Juhl himself. The exhibition opened in 22 cities between 1954 and 1957 and was attended by approximately 650,000 visitors.
As a result of this exposure and because of its light, elegant and timeless design, the Table Bench has always been a popular piece that has achieved extremely high prices at auctions worldwide.
Onecollection has relaunched the Table Bench in three lengths: 112, 170 and 225 cm; and in walnut, teak, oak, Oregon pine or black linoleum with a burnished steel frame and wooden toes.
The Table Bench comes with or without edges in matte polished brass. Furthermore, the bench is available with a foldable, padded cushion in either fabric or leather.
