Design Story

The Design

With the SH900 Extend the Danish furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn provides the ideal, elegant dining table for large family gatherings or long evenings with good friends, good food and good drinks. Designed by Christina Strand and Niels Hvass and released in 2007, the SH900 Extend is true to its name and extends from a compact 1.90 meters out to an incredible 3 meters, and that without losing the overall harmony of its appearance and its innate stability. This functionality is achieved not only on account of clear and uncompromising design of the dining table, but also from the noble oak, from which the SH900 Extend is manufactured. This purist, aesthetically charming dining table is as inviting, as you could wish from such a piece of furniture in its category only and moreover, it is consistent with the finest traditions of Scandinavian design, a tradition which which Carl Hansen & Søn helped establish through their cooperations with Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen in the 1950s

Designer

"Inspiration is often to be found where nothing is - in silence, in the empty space. It should not be too much, and for those details that exist, there is a good reason", says Christina Strand, who since 1998 has operated a design studio in Copenhagen with her husband Niels Hvass. As a design duo Strand + Hvass follow the conviction of design as an opportunity to improve the condition of human life. Here the user is at the centre: function and beauty, simplicity and harmony are the goal of each design. Strand and Hvass are deeply rooted in Scandinavian culture and in context of their collaboration with Carl Hansen could develop this understanding of and respect for the finer traditions of Scandinavian design with their SH 900 Extend table.

A well thought-out construction can be its own decoration. (Hans J. Wegner)

Production

The ingenious design of the Carl Hansen SH900 Extend dining table is defined by the built-in extension plates of lightweight black MDF which remain hidden inside when not extended, yet which allows the table to be extended to 3 meters if required. The distance between the legs is 1.68 meters is increased as the table extends, thus ensuring stability and safety. In addition to the MDF the SH900 Extend is crafted from solid oak, a material which not only brings warmth to the composition but also defines the overall aesthetic experience. As a principle Carl Hansen & Son processed predominantly hardwoods from Danish forests which are sustainably managed in accordance with legal guidelines. In the case of the Carl Hansen SH900 Extend this combination of exquisite oak, the clever design of Strand & Hvass and the know-how of the Danish furniture manufacturer have resulted in a unique and durable product.

The design of the SH900 Extend originates from Strand + Hvass.

Manufacturer

The carpentry firm Carl Hansen & Søn was founded in 1908 and quickly established a strong reputation thanks to the high quality of its craftsmanship and resulting furniture. Thus the company, which initially only produced customized products, enlarged and expanded to include the serial production of the most popular pieces of furniture. The combination of traditional craftsmanship and expedient series production continues to characterize the portfolio of Carl Hansen: a major role in which plays Danish furniture design classics from the likes of Hans J. Wegner as well as furniture designs from the 1930s to 1960s by architects such as Kaare Klingt or Frits Henningsen. In addition to these classics Carl Hansen & Søn also present contemporary interpretations of the Scandinavian furniture design tradition - as evident in works such as the SH900 Extend by Strand + Hvass.
