Pair of "Tipvogn" Chairs by H. Brockmann Petersen

About

Pair of "Tipvogn" Chairs by H. Brockmann Petersen. Designed by H. Brockmann Petersen in 1953. Made by cabinetmaker Louis G. Thiersen & Søn, Copenhagen. Teak legs, upholstered in Holland & Sherry camel and warm grey boiled wool. This rare chair, with its innovative design inspired by the shape of a dump - or tipper - truck, created a stir when it was exhibited at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1953. A newspaper article on the exhibition shows a photograph of the King of Denmark sitting in the chair. Literature Grete Jalk, ed., "40 Years of Danish Furniture Design: The Copenhagen Cabinet-makers’ Guild Exhibitions 1927-1966, Copenhagen", 1987, vol. 1II, 1947-1956, pp. 266-267, illustrated fig. 2.
