Table with compartments designed by H Brockmann Petersen for Louis G Thiersen,
Denmark, 1950s.

Mahogany, nut wood, and brass.

The Danish designer H Brockmann Petersen designed this remarkably geometric table with compartments and lidded storage vessels in the 1950s. The table was a special commission for a pipe smoker as it can hold several pipes, tobacco types, and smoking accessories. It was skillfully carved from mahogany and nut wood by Louis G Thiersen, Brockmann Petersen’s preferred cabinetmaker, with elegant brass hinges closing the rectangular storage spaces.

Not much is known about H Brockmann Petersen’s life, but his mid-century designs show an exquisite sense of proportion and craftsmanship.
