Larsen & Bender-Madsen for Fritz Hansen Dining Chair in Oak


Einar Larsen & Aksel Bender-Madsen for Fritz Hansen, model 4205, orange upholstery, oak, Denmark, 1950s

This wide dining chair is executed with a rounded back. The chair features a blond oak frame and has rounded, soft edges. 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 detail in this design.

Larsen (1917-1985) and Bender Madsen (1916-2000) were both educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Not only their friendship, but also their collaboration lasted a lifelong. From 1947 on they developed over more than 300 designs together. Always characterized by a clean, simple and timeless design.
