About The Collection

Aesthetics and functionality are melded as one in the Haugesen Table, which was awarded th the coveted Danish ID Design Award in 1986. The remarkable metal construction in brushed steel creates a textural contrast to the solid tabletop in coloured-through laminate. Upon closer examination, one can see that the table has two flaps that can be folded out to create extensions.

The extension flaps are hidden underneath the table and kept in place by a unique mechanism which is easy to use, which are also an integral part of the table design. The Haugesen table measures 189 cm in length, however with both extensions protracted, the table reaches a length of 305 cm.

Fredericia started to manufacture the Haugesen table in 2004. In connection with this, Niels Jørgen Haugesen enhanced the functionality of the table with new careful detailing, in order to achieve a truly optimal design.

Haugesen Table

Niels Jørgen Haugesen

Designer

“IF YOU CANNOT CREATE FUNCTIONAL FURNITURE, THEN YOU HAD BETTER TURN YOUR HAND TO SOMETHING ELSE"

Haugesen (1936-2013) used the high-tech movement with thought-through functionality and immense attention to material to create widely recognised Danish design. In his work with Fredericia, he perfected the details of the award-winning 1984 Haugesen table to achieve a truly optimal design.

Haugesen was known for his stringent and industrial style that nevertheless was sophisticated in every crafted detail.

“I like my furniture to have a clear identity that hopefully appeals to people’s senses.”

Haugesens’ success was in part due to his tenacity. The ability to keep on going until something is finished is a skill he honed when working for Arne Jacobsen’s design studio. During his 5 years there, he absorbed all he could about furniture design, interior decorating and spatial reasoning, before establishing his own studio.

In 1996, Haugesen was awarded the Danish Furniture Prize as well as the lifelong Artists' Grant by the Danish Ministry of Culture. Twice earlier he was the recipient of Denmark’s highest design honours, the ID Design Award for the Haugesen Table and the chair X-line.
