Characterized by a round and light design, CPH20 table is part of the Copenhague furniture collection designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. HAY invited the Bouroullec brothers to design the furniture for the new buildings of the University of Copenhagen (KUA). Due to the symmetrical frames and sleek legs, Copenhagen chairs and tables both stack vertically, allowing an almost infinite stacking. The Bouroullec brothers wanted to create furniture with greater originality and a more domestic expression than the traditional educational furniture. The Copenhague collection fits for all kinds of public and private use.
In 2021, HAY renewed the surface treatments of its wood furniture by replacing their paints and lacquers with water-based alternatives. Please note that this table is an older, PU lacquered version that is no longer in production. Due to the update, natural wood furniture now comes with only one lacquer option instead of the previous two: the new water-based lacquer is glossier than the matte lacquer previously used, but slightly more matte than HAY’s previous clear lacquer.
