Danish designers are renowned around the world for their beautiful and functional chairs. This substantial new book tells the full story of the Danish chairs that were created during the 20th century. The Danish Chair: An International Affair is structured around chair types and illustrates how the “golden age” of Danish furniture design was driven by the study and refinement of historical furniture types that served as important sources of inspiration. The book traces the family relations between the chairs and shows how they influenced each other in terms of detailing, construction and concept. A highly visual introduction to the Danish chair of the 20th century, this volume is based on a permanent exhibition of the same name that opened at Designmuseum Danmark in 2016 and written by the museum’s head of exhibits and collections, Christian Holmsted Olesen.
