At the current exhibition at our Copenhagen gallery are we showing works by Hans J. Wegner, Tove & Kindt-Larsen, Finn Juhl and Ib Kofod Larsen.
The highlights are the Halyard chair by Hans J. Wegner, Finn Juhl’s Chieftain chair and an exceptional pair of the Elizabeth chairs by Ib Kofod Larsen.
The gallery is located in the center of the city just beneath the Churchill Park in relation to the “Gefion Fountain” and “Kastellet”. Visits can be arranged by phone or e-mail.
Finn Juhl’s charming two-seater sofa designed 1952 for cabinetmaker Søren Villadsen together with Hans J. Wegner’s Halyard chair designed 1950 for Getama.
The Halyard chair is one of Wegner’s most interesting chairs, building on a steel frame construction upholstered with halyard. Wegner introduced a long haired sheepskin to the chair to make it a casual lounger and today the innovative design has grown to be on of his most iconic chairs.
The chair at our exhibition is a fine and early example with wooden disks executed in the start of the 1950’s, at the exhibition shown with a contemporary floor lamp in brass by artist Leonor Antunes.
The Elizabeth chair is recognized as one of the finest pieces by Ib Kofod Larsen, designed 1956 and executed by the cabinetmakers Christensen & Larsen. The pair is constructed with a beautiful detailed exposed frame upholstered with cow hide.
The pair at the exhibition are made of Brazilian Rosewood and upholstered with original leather.
Finn Juhl designed the Chieftain chair for the Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibition 1949 where it was shown at the exhibition together with native people’s hunting tools – Juhl was highly influenced by – and what the Chieftain chair is a fine example of. The chair was executed by cabinetmaker Niels Vodder.
The example at our exhibition is a rare and early example executed in teak upholstered with the original black dyed natural leather.
