This particular bowl has her hand painted signature on the bottom. Conny Walther began her career at Saxbo Pottery in 1948. She was there only a year before she began studying at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen from 1949-1951. After graduating she worked at Kähler Ceramics in Næstved for a few years. In 1952 she opened her own studio in Birkerød just north of Copenhagen with her then husband, artist Bent Stubbe Teglbjerg. He would sometimes decorate her works and has likely been involved with the making of this bowl. Conny Walther has been exhibited from Tokyo over Paris to Chicago. W. 28 cm. (11”) H. 17 cm. (6,7”)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Legend has it that a giant named Offero would only serve the greatest he would meet. First he served his king. But soon learned that the king was afraid of Satan. So Offero went to Satan, only to find out that he was afraid of the cross of Christ. He then knew he could only serve Christ. An angel told Offero that he could do so by carrying travellers safely across a rushing river. One night, a child asked him to be carried across the river. But halfway across the river the boy suddenly became heavy as a mountain. Offero wondered about the weight that forced him to his knee. When the got to the other side of the river he said to the boy ‘The whole world would not have been as heavy on my shoulders as you’. The child replied ‘You had on your shoulders not only the whole world but he who created it. I am Christ, your king, whom you are serving by this work.’ Christ gave Offero the name Christophorus / Christopher, meaning Bearer of Christ. Christophorus put his rod in the ground, and it shot green leaves, and he understood that he should preach the gospel. H. 18,5 cm (7,3")

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 factory later became PJ Furniture and also executed designs from modern masters like Ole Wanscher, Arne Hovmand-Olsen and Vilhelm Wohlert.

    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. This wingback was exhibited at The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition, Kunstindustrimuseet, stand 17, Sep 27 to Oct 13 1946. H. 111 cm. (43,7") D. 85 cm. (33,5") Seating H. 42 cm.

They would start out as wholesales but success turned the company into production as well. For Fog & Mørup it was always about quality. And one of the main reasons they kept producing the best of the time was because they cared for their employees. They were one of the first companies in Denmark to pay their workers dividends. Erik Mørup believed that if the employees knew they would get part of the profit, they would care more about the materials and tools they were working with and ultimately create better quality. This chandelier is a testament to that belief.

He firmly believed that all the knowledge architects had combined with the skills of trained carpenters would result in something extraordinary. And he was right. When the two groups lowered their guards, dropped their prejudices magic happened and the clean functional style of Danish Modern was born.
