    Very rare and early wingback armchair by Grete Jalk and Ejner Larsen

    This very rare wingback was designed in 1946 by Grete Jalk (1920-2006) and Ejner Larsen (1917-1987). The legs are of elm. Seat, back and sides are upholstered with light fabric including Niger leather buttons and piping.

    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.
