Renowned as the first modern Danish classic furniture piece, Kaare Klint’s Faaborg Chair in mahogany lacquer is manufactured to exacting standards by artisans at the Carl Hansen & Søn workshop in Denmark.
Marking a new era of Danish design, the Faaborg Chair provided a foundation for the Danish Modern phenomenon that emerged in the 1950s, with its essential functionality and lightness of form.
Originally designed for use in the Danish Faaborg Museum in 1915, Klint created the lightweight eponymous chair to allow visitors to transport the seating and sit before artworks they wished to study in greater detail.
Crafted with a handwoven French cane work body structure, the chair’s complementary frame presents a rich mahogany lacquer. The seat is upholstered in premium Sif leather from Carl Hansen & Søn: a full-grain, uncoated pure aniline ox hide with high breathability that will age with patina and grace.
Subtle and functional with contrastingly intricate handwoven detail and construction, the Faaborg Chair by Kaare Klint is a classic modern Danish design that will enhance any corner of your living space with its premium materials and superior craftsmanship.
