About this item

The 3501 table is a perfect example of his minimalist approach and an examination of using both wood and metal in the same design. The tabletop floats within a simple frame almost like a piece of artwork, offering a rich depth of color against the contrast of the polished steel. It’s also quite a rare beauty as the 3501 was believed to have been only produced for a matter of 5-7 years from around 1956-1963.

This example of the 3501 dates from the earlier period around the late 1950s, as can be evidenced by the markings underneath the table which are indicative of furniture produced by FH at that time, (later models had stickers). It’s not in perfect condition and this is intentional. I could have sanded it back to remove all the marks but I personally believe a piece of furniture of this age and simplistic beauty should wear its history not as scars to be airbrushed out but as a reminder of the 60 years of enjoyment it has given whoever has been lucky enough to own it.
