    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.

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.

Ansgar Fog og Erik Mørup became good friends in 1902 when they both worked in the same a grocery store in Århus, Denmark. Soon after they became business partners. 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.

    SOLD - Rare asymmetric arm chair with Niger leather by Steen Eiler Rasmussen

    This very rare asymmetric arm chair was named the 'Make-yourself-at-home'-chair by the man behind the design architect Steen Eiler Rasmussen (1898-1990). He designed the chair in 1936. It is upholstered with Niger leather with legs of mahogany stained beech. The asymmetrical chair was executed by master cabinetmaker A.J. Iversen. To our knowledge only a total of four known examples. Two of those – a set of mirrored twins – are currently found at Ringsted city hall. Exhibited: The present model was exhibited at the ‘Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild exhibition’, Kunstindustrimuseet, Copenhagen, 30 Sep – 16 Oct 1949, stand 20. Press: Danish newspaper ‘Politiken’, 30th Sep. 1949, p. 10 Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen Steen Eiler Rasmussen, probably best known as a specialist in town planning, has designed an easy chair for A.J. Iversen. The back is high in one side to provide support for the shoulders and then drops steeply to satisfy the need for a place to rest one’s elbow – an inclination we all have after sitting a while. For the same reason one armrest is only half the height of the other. A high armrest is uncomfortable if one whishes to sit with one’s leg over the side of the chair. Steen Eiler Rasmussen’s chair epitomizes the present exhibition: somewhat old-fashioned in its form and yet with great measure of freedom in the practical application. Press: Danish newspaper ‘Nationaltidende’, 30 Sep 1949, p 5: The professor himself calls the chair the make-youself-at-home-chair. He got the idea on the ferry to England, where he noticed how especially gentlemen had a habit of putting their legs over the arm rest to relax. But ordinary chairs aren’t suited for that as opposed to Eiler Rasmussen’s chair which only has a high back on one side. It would be especially practical as an executive office chair. Guests will be more inclined to feel at ease when they are offered a seat in the make-yourself-at-home-chair.   H. 102 cm. (40,16") W. 75 cm. (29,5") D. 82,5 cm. (32,5")
