Cognac Leather Swivel FK Lounge Chair by Preben Fabricius & Jorgen Kastholm

About the Item

Beautiful cognac leather lounge chair designed by Jørgen Kastholm & Preben Fabricius. This so called Bird Chair with matte chrome plated tripod base is in excellent condition. Marked with Walther Knoll label. Preben Fabricius (1931-1984) trained as a carpenter in Copenhagen, before studying interior design under Finn Juhl, where he met the blacksmith Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007). In 1961 Fabricius and Kastholm co-founded a studio, from which a number of furniture design classics later emerged. Their intention was to create furniture with a clear aesthetic form. Their ultimate goal was timelessness. In the late 1960s Fabricius and Kastholm succeeded in designing one of the icons of design history, the FK. The bucket seat stands for classic design, as well as being a beacon of modernity and shining example of minimalism. In 1969, the chair was the first recipient of the Federal Prize for “Good Form” in Germany.
