1960s Kai Kristiansen Twelve Rosewood Dining Chairs with Upholstery of Choice

About

Model 31 "A frame" was designed by Kai Kristiansen in 1956 for Schou-Andersens Møbelfabrik. It is one of the most well-known chairs designed by Kai Kristiansen - a true Classic with its curved backrest, crooked angles, straight lines and is as all of Kai Kristiansens chairs very comfortable in use. The frames of the chairs have been overlooked and refinished by our cabinetmaker and is in very good condition. The chairs will be reupholstered with fabric of your choice from "KVADRAT", so you get the set you wish for ready for use when they arrive to your dining room. Kai Kristiansen who is still alive was born in 1929 and raised in Thy, North Denmark. Originally a carpenter, Kristiansen was educated as a building architect at the Royal Academi of Arts in Copenhagen and graduated from here in 1954. His father was the propritetor of at furniture production company, so his interest in furniture was founded early. Kristiansen was one of the last pupils of the famous architect Kaare Klint who died in 1959 and is considered the founder of modern Danish design. During the years 1958-78 Kristiansen worked in his business in Aarhus owned jointly by himself and designer and cabinetmaker Illum Wikkelsø (1919-99). Kristiansens works met their most intense demand during a few decades from 1950, then production of them was discontinued. However, several of the are now being produced again by the Japanese furniture producer Miyazaki Chair Mill in Tokushima. An Australien producer has also included Kristiansen production in their portfolio. Kai Kristiansen might have been the originator of mass produced furniture, had he accepted an offer from Ikea-founder Ingvar Kamprad. He declined to let himself enroll in the Ikea staff. Kristiansen exhibitions include numerous participations in furniture and design shows in Milano, Paris, Cologne and London. Among his most cherished works is the Paper Knife collection, including two sofas, a coffee table and an armchair. His 4110 og Handy chairs are also widely sold. In fact, the Kai Kristiansen name is probably better known by a selected global furniture design public than it is known generally in his home country.
