Group of “Fireplace Chairs” with Footstool by Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen

About

Group of “Fireplace Chairs” with Footstool by Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen. About the chair: This important chair, created to sit in a den in front of an open fireplace, was first exhibited at the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibition in 1939 where it was immediately hailed as a masterpiece of modern design. It was a structural innovation, and its method of design has been repeatedly adapted by other designers ever since. The separation of the upholstered seat from the wooden frame, the distinctive x-shaped cross bar under the seat and the unique shape of the top of the arm, set this chair aside from anything that had come before. Contemporary reviews raved that it “had everything that one would expect from a design winning first prize in a design competition”, and that “the cooperation between architects and cabinetmaker is more successful here than anywhere else.” The Fireplace Chair is in the permanent collection of the Danish Museum of Art and Design, Copenhagen. About the Kindt-Larsens: Edward and Tove Kindt-Larsen were a Danish husband and wife team who worked together beginning in 1937, when they opened their own office in Copenhagen. Both studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. During the course of their long careers, they received numerous prizes, honors and medals for their work.
