Rare "Clam" Armchair by Philip Arctander '1916-1994'

About

Oak frame and armrests, natural Himalayan goatskin upholstered structure, circa 1945. Dimensions: H 90, L 65, P 60 cm Philip Arctander is a Danish architect. In 1944, among five other independent architects, he was asked to design furniture in a competition sponsored by the newly opened supplier and boutique NY FORM A / S in Copenhagen. Arctander's contribution was striking: the Muslingestol (Clam chair) with natural wooden legs and supported by sheepskin. The piece immediately benefited from a limited release in Copenhagen, both by NY FORM A / S and Nordisk Staal & Møbel Central. Reference: - Lars Dybdahl, Furnitue Boom, Strandberg, 2018, p. 128. Bibliography: LP-nyt Review, Copenhagen, No. 43, March 1945. Similar copy reproduced p. 356. Form magazine, Number 1-10, Stockholm, 1947. Similar copy reproduced p. 152.
