Aksel Bender Madsen for Fritz Hansen Set of Four Armchairs in Oak
Aksel Bender Madsen for Fritz Hansen, set f four dining chairs, oak, black upholstery, Denmark, circa 1955
This set of four Danish dining chairs feature a blond oak frame that forms a great colour palette with the black fabric. The chairs are solid and have rounded, soft edges seats and backs. The interesting thing about this design is the edge that has been taken out of the back seat where the armrests connect with the corners of the back. This creates a certain graphic, robust look.

From 1947 on they developed over more than 300 designs together. Always characterized by a clean, simple and timeless design.
