Kasper Akhøj/Abstracta at Chart 2018

For Chart 2018, Galleri Feldt is proud to present an installation by contemporary artist Kasper Akhøj, whose research-based art has often examined the residual histories of modernist design and architecture in subtle and thought-provoking ways. The Chart 2018 installation is the culmination of a project twelve years in the making, and is composed of a group of structures assembled together from pieces of a modular display system that Akhøj h...

Galleri Feldt at Design Miami/ Basel 2018

Galleri Feldt’s contribution to Design Miami/Basel 2018 showcases pieces by three of Danish Modern’s most influential designers—Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007), Finn Juhl (1912-1989), and Poul Henningsen (1894-1967). As essential ingredients in what we think of today as the Danish Modern aesthetic, their styles interact harmoniously with each other: both Wegner and Juhl famously practiced a sculptural mode of form-making the supple lines of w...

Grete Jalk’s timely designs

Galleri Feldt has in its collection an easy chair and two footstools designed by Grete Jalk for her stand at the 1963 Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibition, in which she made a historic yet little known contribution to the world of interior design: she presented the public with a new conception of what leisure in the domestic sphere could look like. This unconventional success came on the heels of Jalk’s winning an international design competiti...

Galleri Feldt at Miart 2018

Through a juxtaposition of Danish Modern design and contemporary art, Galleri Feldt’s contribution to MiArt 2018 presents a meditation on the tension, inherent to the process of design innovation, between the weight of tradition, the desire for individual expression, and the imperatives of functionality. Each work included in the installation—an ensemble including pieces by Nanna Ditzel, Leonor Antunes, Tove and Edvard Kindt-Larsen, Finn J...

Work and Play, Over and Over Again: Cabinets by Poul Kjærholm and Danh Vo

Kjærholm and his cabinets

Galleri Feldt’s drawing cabinets were designed by Poul Kjærholm as part of a 1955 commission from the Architecture School at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen. Each composed of an Oregon pine box with nine drawers (built by Rud. Rasmussen) resting on a frame of molded steel angles, they—together with the two desks included in the commission—constitute a crucial step in the designer’s aesthetic evolution...

Autumn exhibition at Galleri Feldt

This autumn, Galleri Feldt is exhibiting several of its most exciting pieces at our gallery in the Nordhavn district of Copenhagen, which is open for visit by appointment (email info@gallerifeldt.dk to set up a time, or to request additional information, prices, and photos). The installation is a study in contrast: spanning the 1920’s to the 70’s, the exhibited works both enhance and challenge each other through differences in material, co...

Galleri Feldt at Design Miami/ Basel 2017

Poul Kjaerholm / Danh Vo / Nico Ihlein

Made of Oregon pine and ready-made steel angels, the cabinets were part of a commission that included desks for professors and students, and which proved critical for Kjærholm’s professional and stylistic development. It capped a period of struggle during which many of his designs—most of which were attempts to create a novel chair—failed to make it past the prot...
