Made approx. 1930s by a Danish cabinetmaker.
Pine, lacquered beech.
Gifted by Poul Henningsen to his close friends Elias Bredsdorff and Marlie Brande in the 1930s. Hence by descent to their son, Jan Bredsdorff. Later gifted to his friend, Ghita Nørby, who passed it on to her son, Giacomo Campeotto.
The idea behind the hexagonal and three-legged design was that several tables could be placed next to each other, without the table legs getting in the way of the people seated at the tables. Poul Henningsen designed this one table and had it produced by a cabinetmaker with the intention of putting it into serial production. This never happened though, and this is thus the only piece ever made.
