Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius for Poul Bachmann 'PB10' Lounge Chairs
Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius for Poul Bachmann, pair of folding lounge chairs, model ‘PB10’, oak, leather, canvas, brass, steel, rope, Denmark, 1963.
Crafted in 1963 by the skilled cabinetmaker Poul Bachmann, this folding easy chair bears the design of Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius. Originally showcased at The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition held at Designmuseum Danmark in the same year, this chair embodies a striking resemblance to a deck chair, characterized by its sleek and open framework along with an inclined seat. The construction of the chair is comprised of wooden slats in oak with a minimalist appearance. Remarkably ergonomic, the chair allows for adjustment of the backrest angle and provides a generously proportioned seat. Adding to its functionality, the chair can be easily folded by adjusting the leather strap connecting the backrest and front, enabling convenient storage when not in use. The chair's original upholstery features cushions covered in beige canvas, complementing the overall natural look of the chair.
Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) became friends in the 1950s at the School of Interior Design. In the 1960s they started a collaboration. Although they have worked also individually, it is as a duo that they have achieved their greatest success. During the eight years of partnership, they managed to create a wide selection of very high-quality designs. The results were often minimalistic and functional designs in steel, glass and leather. Most of the furniture of the Danish designer duo was produced by the German manufacturer Kill International.
