Henning Kjaernulf “Razorblade” Armchair with Sheepskin Seat, Denmark 1960s

About the Item

This so-called “Razorblade” armchair, designed by Henning Kjaernulf, combines a strong angular structure with a rounded curved design that gives an overall feeling of strength and durability. This chair takes its name from the razorblade shaped backseat, that also makes this model immediately recognizable. The wide, flat armrests on both sides are supported by a solid open oak frame that is both functional and aesthetically appealing. The seat is elongated and gently raised towards the front legs. This shape gives the chair an open and welcoming feeling. The front legs supporting the armrests are carved in a way that resembles the Baroque style, yet, Scandinavian modernism remains at the core of the design. Henning Kjaernulf’s Razorblade chairs are the designer’s most distinctive designs. This model was manufactured by EG Kvalitetsmobel in Denmark during the 1960s. The chair has been recently reupholstered in luscious light-coloured sheepskin. Condition: In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The seat has been reupholstered recently in premium sheepskin. Each of our items can be re-upholstered by our in-house atelier in a fabric of choice. Please reach out for more information. Dimensions: 28.54 in W x 24.8 in D x 29.52 in H; Seat height 15.35 in; Arm height 21.45 in 72.5 cm W x 63 cm D x 75 cm H; Seat height 39 cm; Arm height 54.5 cm About the designer: Danish mid-century designer and architect, Henning Kjaernulf is somewhat of a mystery. A lot more is known about his designs than Kjaernulf himself. His wooden designs, crafted to perfection, speak for themselves. Kjaernulf mainly designed for the Danish manufacturers EG Kvalitetsmobel, Nyrup Møbelfabrik, and Vejle Stole Møbelfabrik. The latter produced the designer’s well-known teak extending dining table design. The historic archives of the Danish municipality, Stenlille, reveal the history of Nyrup Møbelfabrik, mentioning Kjaernulf’s architectural designs for the company’s factory, referring to him as an architect based in Odense, Denmark. Kjaernulf’s works reveal quality craftsmanship throughout, featuring clean Danish modern era lines with sculpted edges and shapes. The unique shapes, like his razorblade chair backrests, distinguish the designer from other Danish mid-century designers. In light of how sought after his dining sets and lounge chairs are, it remains a mystery why so little is known about the designer. The curious background of Kjaernulf if anything, adds more charm to his pieces.~H.
