    Rare set of four fumed oak chairs with black leather by  Chris Sørensen

    This rare set of four fumed oak chairs with patinated black leather is by architect Chris Sørensen. The chairs were designed in 1955 and executed by Nils Otto Møllers company 'J. L. Møllers møbelfabrik' in Aarhus, Denmark. The model number is 74. Fumed oak or smoked oak as it is also known has in fact nothing to do with smoke or heat treatment. The original light oak wood was made darker by exposing it to ammonia fumes. The ammonia reacts with the natural tannins in the wood, which gives it a darker colour and brings out the grain pattern. The longer the wood is exposed to ammonia the darker it gets. Apparently this ageing technique was invented by accident in England hundreds of years ago, when it was noticed that oak planks stored in the horse stable would darken because of exposure to the ammonia fumes from the horse urine.

    This executive high back leather armchair high back with brass feet was designed by architects Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard Nielsen in 1948 for The Danish Medical Association. It was designed for the boardroom of their head quarters, Domus Medica.  The armchair was executed by cabinetmaker Gustav Bertelsen. The architects were given free hands to design the interior. But when discussing chairs for the boardroom, they were specifically told that seating comfort was crucial as board meetings could last for up to 12 hours! Which is why the chair has a spring cushion seat and upholstered armrests. H. 112 cm. (44") W. 63 cm. (24,8") D. 85 cm. (33,5" Seating H. 45,5 cm. (18")

    Unique chair bench with woven canvas seat by Jørgen Gammelgaard

    This unique chair bench by Jørgen Gammelgaard (1938-1991) was made as a prototype for The Royal National Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark ca. 1983 when architects Eva and Nils Koppel decorated the new actors foyer as part of the extension at Kgs. Nytorv. It has a frame of maple with a black-lacquered back piece and a long seat with woven canvas. The idea was to create a piece of furniture for actors and ballet dancers to both sit and stretch during rehearsal- or performance-breaks. The hand-built prototype was never produced in numbers. In the late 1950s Jørgen Gammelgaard worked as a cabinetmaker with A. J. Iversen before studying at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen, where he worked under architects Poul Kjærholm and Ole Wanscher.

    High back leather upholstered armchair by Kaare Klint

    This high back armchair of mahogany was designed by Kaare Klint (1888-1954) back in 1939. It was manufactured by Rud. Rasmussen Cabinetmakers, Denmark. The model is called 'Nørrevold' after the location of the building in central Copenhagen it was designed for. The model number is 5999. The seat and back are upholstered with patinated black leather as well as the adjustable headrest. Cabinetmaker Rudolf Rasmussen, born in 1888, the same year as Klint, had in 1904 taken over the family carpentry business from his father, founder Rudolph Rasmussen.  Kaare Klint knew Rudolf from when they both attended Gregersens school in the well off neighbourhood of Frederiksberg. At the time a school where sons of architects and artists were mixed with the kids from the rougher neighbouring quarter (Nørrebro, where the Rud. Rasmussen family had their carpentry).  The two peers would stick together and work together throughout their career. They even attended a local gymnastics team in their older years.

    Rare and early easy chair by Arne Hovmand-Olsen

    This rare teak easy chair has a curvy seat and the back is upholstered with light fabric. 

    Its armrests and buttons on the back are fitted with Niger leather. The chair was designed early in 1947 by Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) and executed by J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik in Aarhus, Denmark. It was one of the very first easy chairs Mr. Hovmand-Olsen and Niels Otto Møller, the founder of J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik created together. And even one of the very first chairs that was executed at J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. The two men were both still in their 20s and just starting out on what would become very successful careers for both of them. Towards the end of the 1930s Arne Hovmand-Olsen worked at Peder Olsen Sibast carpentry on the island of Funen (a carpentry that later would become the more well-known furniture manufacturer Sibast Furniture which produced designs for Arne Vodder). But Hovmand-Olsen had the desire to create furniture designs himself, so he enrolled at Technical Collage in Århus in 1941.  A few years later towards the end of WW2, having finished his studies the young Hovmand-Olsen met Niels Otto Møller at the Trade Fair in Fredericia. N. O. Møller had recently set up production facilities and shop in Århus (where Hovmand had studied and resided) and was looking to expand his furniture production.  This chair became one of their first collaborations, if not the first.

    Pair of orchestra chairs for musicians by Vilhelm Lauritzen

    This pair of orchestra chairs was designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894-1984) for musicians to be seated comfortably in the concert hall inside 'Radiohuset' (The Radio Building) - the now former headquarters of national Danish broadcaster DR. Vilhelm Lauritzen designed Radiohuset from 1935 to 1945 when it was officially opened. It was a time when radio was a new and exciting form of technology that gave the people an experience out of the ordinary, and therefore when it came to the designing the interior of Radiohuset that too had to be out of the ordinary. Very exclusive materials were used and everything was custom made. A young Finn Juhl was also part of the project as he worked for V. Lauritzen at the time. The frame of the chairs is solid oak and they are upholstered with light wool fabric. Their legs swirl elegantly down to the brass feet. Both seat and backrest of the chairs are adjustable to suit specific needs for comfort. The chairs are not only suitable for musicians, also creative artist such as painters and writers could benefit from them. The chairs artistic design would furthermore add elegance to most locations.

During the 1950s a number of designers began exploring the possibilities of moulding sheets of veneer into gently curved shapes. Charles and Ray Eames, Wegner, Alvar Aalto and Grete Jalk were among the those whom began bending the rules of nature. Around the time when these side chairs were designed, Jalk also designed her more famous and much more complex bent GJ Chair, but it was years later in the early 1960s that it was set in limited production by P. Jeppesen møbelfabrik  These side chairs were executed by P. Jeppesen Møbelfabrik, Danmark in the late 1950s. One of the side chairs has a paper label from the manufacturer. Both chairs are stamped are with ‘DANISH Furnituremakers CONTROL’. Jalk collaborated a great deal with P. Jeppesen Møbelfabrik founded by Poul Jeppesen.

    The young Grete Jalk had just finished her studies at the Danish Design Academy, where she had trained to become a furniture designer, when she in collaboration with the slightly older Ejner Larsen designed this wingback. Ejner Larsen had finished his studies a few years earlier and was in 1946 actually teaching at the academy. Together they entered the cabinetmaker’s design competition in 1946. Jalk had entered the competition the year before without success, but this time she wins 1st prize with Ejner Larsen. After having won she is offered a position at the academy in Stockholm and despite her collaborative success with Ejner Larsen she accepts and moves to Sweden - for six months initially, but she ends up staying on for longer. Back in Denmark Ejner Larsen is looking for a new partner and the year after he joins forces with Aksel Bender Madsen, whom he had studied with at the academy. The two would go on to collaborate for decades and most of the time with master cabinetmaker Willy Beck, who also helped Jalk and Larsen execute this particular wingback chair.
