The JFK Desk is a reinterpretation of the classic 60s office desk. The desk has a slim table top of veneer with three inbuilt drawers.
The drawers have an inner height of 4 cm, making it perfect for laptops, papers and various office supplies. Each drawer has a small knob with knurled texture, as reference to old radio buttons from the 50s and 60s. The name is a tribute to the classic Danish office desks, often used by John F. Kennedy during the 1960s.
The table top core is made from MDF and available with palisander veneer or black ash veneer. The table top has a small space inside for a power distributor, making it easy to power both smartphones and laptops. The cable from the power distributor is dragged through a small hole in one of the legs, creating an elegant desk without messy cables on the floor.
The desktop is supported by a leg construction of aluminum, which is available in a mat black powder coating. The conic shaped leg meets in the middle underneath the table top, which gives the table a very light and elegant expression.
