Copenhague is a furniture series designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec especially for the new buildings at the University of Copenhagen. In addition to a homely and welcoming expression, functional furniture qualities such as stackability, durability and ease of cleaning were important design requirements for the university. The Bouroullec brothers approach the task by merging design history with modern technology in an idiom with a strong and independent appearance in a broad and versatile series that embraces both public and private environments. The characteristic angular bend of the Bouroullecs’ design is also present in CPH Moulded Plywood Desk. Here, instead of two symmetrical surfaces, one of the tabletop sections has been raised up to form a stand for notes and open books. A fun feature that gives the desk a distinctive and narrative expression.
