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.
