ITEM DETAILS

Date:  1970 (as marked beneath the drawers)

Manufacturer:  Hedensted Møbelfabrik

Designer:  Peter Løvig-Nielsen

This rare and distinctive desk was designed by Peter Løvig-Nielsen and produced by Hedensted Møbelfabrik in 1970. It has a unique, and practical, flip-top with brass hinges, dovetailed drawer inserts, and carved circular drawer pulls that are signature to this piece. It stands on block legs joined by an open box stretcher along the sides and the back.  This desk is often referred to as a “Partner’s Desk” due to its ability to extend the work surface by flipping down the hinged gallery top.  The flip compartment retains the two sliding work tray drawers for each end.  It was made in 1970 and was sold through the Maurice Villency store in New York.  Proof of authenticity includes two date stamps under each of the lower end drawers (1970) and the maker’s mark/designer stamp (Løvig Dansk Design) to the underside.

Interestingly, this desk is often mis-attributed to Dansk International Designs, but there is no history of affiliation between Peter Løvig-Nielsen and that company.  The mistaken identity is due to the use of the word “Dansk” in the design stamp.  “Dansk” translates to “Danish” which in conclusion means that Mr. Løvig-Nielsen’s stamp of “Løvig Dansk Design” simply means “Løvig Danish Design” and not an indication of affiliation with Dansk International.  

TIDBIT

Did you know that Peter Løvig-Nielsen was the owner of Hedensted Møbelfabrik? It stands to reason that it is the company of production (his other desks are Hedensted-made) even though this style of desk was not marked with the sticker.

Note that the painting, brass herons, lamp, chair and rug are not included.  If you are interested in these other fab mid mod items please check the other listings to see what is still available. 

CONDITION

Very good vintage condition.  The teak is immaculate and shows very little wear.  Missing the key.
