The JEPPE UTZON TABLE #1 balances a sublime contrast between the naked wooden material and the selected crafted details.

With sizes up to 300 cm, the table is robust enough to serve a natural gathering point in both meeting rooms and dining halls, yet detailed enough to stand out. The table is made in a classic solid wood construction. Beneath the table is a discrete steel cable, which can be adjusted with an ordinary wrench to achieve stability and prevent deflection over the years. Jeppe Utzon has achieved international acclaim as an architect and designer, and the cross-creative DNA comes from no stranger. Jeppe Utzons grandfather was a famed Danish architect Jørn Utzon - the architect and designer of the Sydney Opera House. As his grandfather, Jeppe Utzon allows detail and totality to work together in a unified expression that has genuine global appeal, and this design philosophy is truly embodied in JEPPE UTZON TABLE #1.


Jeppe Utzon

Jeppe Utzon is a third generation architect - and fourth generation designer. As the grandson of the famous Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who created the Sydney Opera House, Jeppe Utzon continues a rich family tradition through his work in the art of architecture. He runs a design studio in the historic centre of Copenhagen, and is doing projects for clients in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The projects are as diverse as private luxury homes in Denmark, eco holiday resorts in Nicaragua, iconic commercial buildings in Shanghai, and floating social housing in Bolivia.

As a designer, his career was kick-started by his multiple award winning Jeppe Utzon BBQ for Electrolux. Since then his furniture and product design work has grown considerably and now accounts for half of his studios work. In 2014 he started a design collaboration with dk3 and introduced the JEPPE UTZON TABLE #1 for dk3 in 2015.


dk3 is a Danish design furniture company established in 2009. Their collection combines exclusive classic and contemporary furniture from great Danish architects and designers such as Jeppe Utzon, Kaare Klint, Børge Mogensen, Poul Cadovius and others.
