About this item

A stunning set of six Scandinavian chairs with black vinyl seat pads. Elegant and beautiful, these dining chairs were designed and manufactured in Denmark in the 1960s and are made from teak. These curved-back chairs have amazing lines, super comfortable backrests and triangular side detailing. Just stunning to look at, the chairs are very similar in style to those designed by Kai Kristiansen and Henning Kjaernulf.

The real focus of Danish design, the object that had the longest-lasting influence, was the chair. Cabinet pieces were important, but the chair was the fundamental form. A chair is the hardest thing to design because it’s got to be comfortable even though people are made in all different sizes, shapes, and forms. What’s comfortable to one person may not be comfortable to another, but there are some defining proportions that help to determine whether it’s comfortable or not.

The physics of the chair are also important because if you don’t get it right, the thing can collapse on you. In fact Mies van der Rohe once said that designing a chair was much more difficult than designing a skyscraper. That’s got to be somewhat of an exaggeration, but the important thing is it’s a much more technical subject than we might realise.

In super condition, there is one very small, almost unnoticeable, little ‘nibble’ to the underneath of one of the seat pads (see photo). All items of this age will show some signs of use commensurate with their age. Please ask if you'd like any further detail re condition.
