Palle Suenson Table in Solid Teak
Palle Suenson, table, teak, Denmark, c. 1940
Striking Scandinavian Modern table by Danish architect and designer Palle Suenson (1904-1987). This particular table is specifically designed for the new office building of Aarhus Oil Fabrik A/S, located in Aarhus, Denmark. From 1938 to 1942 Suenson was responsible for designing and furnishing the office building. The outcome was a functionalist building covered in 5,500 custom-made ceramic tiles. The factory was founded in 1871, producing vegetable oils, primarily for margarine. Suenson’s aim was to fit the interior design within the company’s ethos, drawing inspiration from exotic plants and raw materials that were used at the factory. The side table shows this clearly by its minimalist design, focusing on the pureness of the material, using solid teak wood, which is in great condition.
