Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen for Gustav Bertelsen, 'Fireplace' chair, teak, leather, Denmark, 1940

This lounge chair was specially designed to sit in front of a fireplace. When it was first exhibited, this model was mentioned as a masterpiece of modern design. This chair has great characteristic details. Starting with the X-shaped crossbar under the seat. The L-shaped seat itself is separated from the wooden frame. Beautiful detail are the armrests which have a nice curve on top of the rests, towards the back of the chair. The chairs are still upholstered in their original cognac leather. The rich patina shows the age of the chairs in a beautiful manner.

  

Both Tove (1906-1994) and Edvardt (1901-1982) Kindt-Larsen were trained as architects. During their marriage and partnership as architects and furniture designers they were at the forefront of Danish and Scandinavian design.
