About

Kaare Klint for Rasmussen, set of two 4488 lounge chairs, mahogany, rosewood, cane and fabric, Denmark, design of 1931. This elegant set of easy chairs are designed by Kaar Klint in 1931. This 4488 model, also named "The English Chair" is actually based on another chair that Klint considered was so perfect that he recreated it. The chair featurs a cane seat, back and sides, with loose cushions for the seat and back. The first chairs of this model had a mahogany frame inlayed with rosewood. Later editions also show exclusively the use of mahogany, such as this particular piece. The chairs are in good condition and show minor traces of use. One of the chairs has a damage in the cane, which can be restored in our in-house atelier. The chair wold also look astonishing with in leather upholstered cushions. Please ask our advisors for the possibilities for restoration and upholstery. Kaare Klint (1888-1954) was a Danish architect and furniture designer. Klint can the seen as the father of Danish Midcentury design. Klint's was the son architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint who architect, designer and artist who is mainly known for designing the Grundtvigs church in Copenhagen. Kaare Klint himself has walked the same path from architect to designer as his father. In 1924, Klint founded the art academy of Copenhagen where he was professor in furniture design. Klint worked and thought along a few strong principles being the importance of former styles and believed that the only way forward was to have a deep knowledge of craftsmanship. One of his other core design principles was to research functionality and deep knowledge of the working of the human body. Klinkt drew inspiration from the Shakers, Chippendale and Biedermeier. Kaare Klint's style from the 1920s and 1930s has had a lot of influence on other designers in both Europe and the United States. Amongst others, Hans Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Poul Kjærholm have taken influence from Klint.
