Kaare Klint for Rud Rasmussens Snedkerier, set of eight armchairs, model '3758A', teak, fabric, Denmark, design 1927

This large set of dining chairs designed by Kaare Klint is special to come by. These chairs have very elegantly sculpted slender armrests. The two back legs of the chairs are shaped slightly inward, that again adds to that elegant appearance. The chairs are upholstered in a light colored wool fabric. Manufactured by the Danish Rad. Radmussens Snedkerier, that worked with many of Denmarks leading designers, like Mogens Koch, Poul Kjaerholm, Mogens Lassen and of course Kaare Klint.

Kaare Klint (1888-1954), the son of an architect, initially became an artist. In 1922 he followed in his fathers footsteps and settled as an independent architect. His most important work consisted of designing furniture, with the result of him being called the father of modern danish design. Apart from the specific designs that gave him his recognition and fame, his theories were also of great importance for later generations of designers. At the age of 25 he made a study of the proportions of the human body and based the sizing of his furniture designs on that.
