Surfboard
A classic, extraordinarily beautiful, yet unpretentious wooden coffee table, created in the 50s by the acclaimed Danish furniture designer Arne Hovmand-Olsen. The design of the tabletop was inspired by the shape of a surfboard, lending the table an innate lightness that makes it perfect for any modern interior. The coffee table is also available with an elegant solid wood and French rattan shelf, adding an extra dimension to this iconic design, which was referred to from its earliest days as the ‘Surfboard’.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) had the world in mind, both before and after the 1950s, when he became one of Denmark’s renowned furniture designers. The son of a farmer and an aesthete by nature, he started as an apprentice cabinetmaker, before studying furniture design and pursuing his passion for visual composition and furniture design.
