In 1956 Peder Moos designed and made this unique and perfectly crafted table for the Danish engineer Dahl – a man intent on making sure that his furniture was always perfectly level. Known for his meticulousness and extreme perfectionism, before designing the table, M oos stayed with the family for three days – sleeping on the floor – just to get the feel of the room. The result is a stunning piece of furniture marking the absolute pinnacle of Danish furniture design.

  1. Yesterday (4. October) this table was sold at auction in Museumsbygningen at a staggering price of 445.000 Dkk – roughly 60.000 Euro. Rumor has that the buyer is a collector in New York.
