Questions About The Clam
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 30, 2023
    Arnold Madsen designed the Clam chair. In the past, it was ascribed to the Norwegian retailer Martin Olsen and then the Danish architect Philip Arctander. It was only through some dogged research by a team of international design historians and collectors that it was finally correctly associated with Madsen, an upholsterer by profession who created it in Copenhagen in 1944. On 1stDibs, find a selection of Clam chairs from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    Yes, the Clam chair is comfortable. Arnold Madsen designed the angle of the seat and the curving contours of the iconic chair to fit the shape of the human body so that the piece could provide optimal support. Although for decades, the piece was the victim of cheap reproductions and misattributions, to fellow Scandinavians Viggo Boesen and Martin Olsen, among others, in recent years it has steadily climbed the ranks in the trophy market, going for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. Today, it’s one of the fashion set’s most beloved pieces, with fans as starry as Los Angeles art dealer Maggie Kayne and style setter Vanessa Traina. Find a range of Clam chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
