About

Kaare Klint for Rud Rasmussen two-seat settee, in red cognac leather and teak legs, Denmark, 1930s. Classic and elegant Scandinavian custom made two-seat settee by Kaare Klint for manufacturer Rud Rasmussen. The piece is upholstered with patinated cognac Niger leather. The base consists of six legs in teak, which create a beautiful rhythm. The slightly sloping armrests create a frame on each side of the settee. This wonderful sofa is in good condition but it has signs of wear making it even more special. The cognac leather shows an absolute admirable patina. This brightens up the natural leather. Literature: Harkær, Gorm. Kaare Klint 1 and 2, p. 92 - 93. Kaare Klint (1888-1954) was a Danish architect and furniture designer. Klint can the seen as the father of Danish midcentury design. Klint's was the son architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint who architect, designer and artist who is mainly known for designing the Grundtvigs church in Copenhagen. Kaare Klint himself has walked the same path from architect to designer as his father. In 1924, Klint founded the art academy of Copenhagen where he was professor in furniture design. Klint worked and thought along a few strong principles being the importance of former styles and believed that the only way forward was to have a deep knowledge of craftsmanship. One of his other core design principles was to research functionality and deep knowledge of the working of the human body. Klinkt drew inspiration from the Shakers, Chippendale and Biedermeier. Kaare Klint's style from the 1920s and 1930s has had a lot of influence on other designers in both Europe and the United States. Amongst others, Hans Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Poul Kjærholm have taken influence from Klint.
