Available exclusively on Brdr-Kruger.com and in Designmuseum Danmark. Hans Bølling’s iconic Tray Table is now available in a special limited edition of only 500 pieces, made in Designmuseum Danmark’s signature colour.
The hand-selected indigo blue is a recurrent colour throughout the museum. First displayed in the historic sandstone portal at the front door that dated from 1757, its unique hue has continued to be a central part of the museum’s identity and interior ever since.
Part of the museum
Award-winning architects OEO Studio renovated and refurbished the museum in 2022 to include the special blue tray table as a permanent part of the interior of the Danish design destination, including featuring it in the café, library and lounge areas.
Bridging the gap between the strength of the past and the possibilities of the future has always been a core part of Designmuseum Danmark. The collaboration between Brdr. Krüger and Hans Bølling is a new turn on this, portraying the active role the museum chooses to play in the communication of ever-developing design.#354269
“With the museum’s reopening in 2022, we wanted to convey design and good craftsmanship throughout the entirety of the museum. Our museum shop is a playful extension of the experience, but also a zone where we can experiment and explore with other ideas or views on history. ”
– Kristian Rise, Development Manager, Designmuseum Danmark.#354269
An icon of Danish design
As a vital part of Danish modernist design heritage, the tray table has only grown in popularity since its origin in 1963. With its simplicity, ease of use and sculptural qualities, it continues to be relevant to changing times and appeal across new generations.
A collectable item of 500 pieces
Every Tray Table is mounted with a brass plate that contains Hans Bølling’s signature and has the individual piece number engraved as a certificate of authenticity. It is discretely placed on the inside of the stretcher of the Tray Table.
Bring a piece of the museum into your own home
We believe everyone should be able to take a fresh piece of the museum home with them. There is a link between the deep blue tone in our fantastic building and the well-known Tray Table in this collaboration, which we hope many people will take home from their visit – as an exclusive emblem across the decades”
– Kristian Rise, Development Manager
Each table is uniquely handcrafted from FSC certified oak, in the signature indigo blue colour, coated with durable varnish
91-year-old Hans Bølling comments:
“I have been coming to the museum myself since I was young and have always appreciated it for its important role in our Danish cultural history, meaning I am enormously proud and honoured that my design is now a living part of this institution.”More about Hans Bølling
Made in Denmark
The tables are carefully manufactured in Brdr. Krüger’s family-owned workshop in Værløse, Denmark. “The tray table is known for its design honesty, based on traditional joinery and innovative solutions, which are in themselves so beautiful they deserve to be highlighted. Hans Bølling is a master in his field, and he combines his talent with a pure and honest approach to designing functional and aesthetic furniture to create design that appeals across generations”.
– Fifth generation Brdr. Krüger, Jonas Krüger.
Designed to be taken home
Created as a flat pack, the Bølling tray-table was futurefacing and modern for its time. The small, flat box contains a handle, providing the ideal means for it to be taken home from the museum shop or Brdr. Krüger. There are no tools or knowledge required to unfold the table and place the trays on it, making it user-friendly, high-quality design.
