Description

Surfboard coffee table, designed by Arne Hovmand-Olsen in 1959, is a Danish design classic that has been re-released by Warm Nordic. The shape of the tabletop is reminiscent of a surfboard, and the empty space between the top and the frame gives the tabletop an airy, hovering appearance. Made of oiled, solid wood, Surfboard is a fine example of Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s love for top-quality materials and playful shapes. Thanks to its lightweight structure and dynamic design, Surfboard will find its place by the sofa or as a distinctive side table elsewhere in the house.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen

Danish furniture designer Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) started his career in 1938 as a cabinetmaker for P.Olsen Sibast. After studying furniture design in a technical school, Hovmand-Olsen founded his own workshop with great success – his designs gained success not only in Denmark but also internationally, especially in the United States.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen was born in 1919 in Denmark in a farm family. He quickly developed an interest for drawing and creation. He started his career in 1938 by an apprenticeship as cabinet maker for P.Olsen Sibast. He really wanted to produce his own creation. He decided to study in a technical school dedicated to furniture design. Once he finished his training program, he founded his own workshop. He quickly met with great success: he sold in Denmark but especially in the United States! His workshop closed during the 1970.
