Kastholm & Fabricius Early 'Grasshopper' Lounge Chair in Cognac Leather

$29,400

About

Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius for Kill Internationl, lounge chair, model FK87 'Grasshopper', leather, steel, Germany, 1968. This modern chaise longue is executed in steel and leather. The playful position of the steel feet that continue in the armrests are responsible for this chair's nickname, the 'Grasshopper'. Besides this slick and Minimalist design, this chair is one of the most comfortable midcentury pieces that we know. The soft cognac leather upholstery is in fair condition. Most of the furniture of Danish designer duo Fabricius and Kastholm was produced by the German manufacturer Kill International, such as this early version of the FK87 chair.
