Limited Edition: Bølling Tray Table for Designmuseum Danmark

Brdr. Krüger is delighted to present a new and exclusive collector’s item, in collaboration with Designmuseum Danmark and Hans Bølling. The iconic and well-loved tray table from 1963 is now available in Design Museum Danmark’s signature blue color, in a limited edition run of 500 pieces.

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. 


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.

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. 


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.”

The tables are manufactured in Brdr. Krüger’s family-owned workshop in Værløse. Brdr. Krüger was founded in 1866, and is known for their award-winning Arv chair, which was developed for the restaurant Noma and has gained vast popularity worldwide. 

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
