The HAY Copenhague CPH 190 desk is part of the Copenhague furniture collection designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Characterized by a slim and functional design, the table is finished with an angular bend in the back of the tabletop.
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 more environmentally friendly, water-based alternatives. Please note that due to this, 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.
