Jørgen Gammelgaard, Seating
Unique chair bench with woven canvas seat by Jørgen GammelgaardThis 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.
