Hans Bølling and Brdr Krüger

Nonagenarian Danish designer Hans Bølling presents a new trio of pieces; a stool, a lounge chair and a coffee table. Bølling’s work is the result of a collaboration with Brdr Krüger and AHEC, in which they were inspired by the 1964 design of the “Tray” wooden table. Considered his proudest achievement, this early design was seen as a simple work of genius, with its reversible tops and collapsible frame, combining design and function.
