LM92 Metropolitan Chair



The Metropolitan chair by Danish designers Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen, earned its name when The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York purchased the chair in 1961.

Originally intended as a conference chair, the design is the result of many intense hours where Larsen and Bender Madsen designed and developed late into the night. The tensioned veneer back was inspired by a lamination technique course Bender Madsen had taken earlier.

The Metropolitan chair features a white oiled oak frame and is distinguished by impressive saddle leather upholstery and superior comfort.

The cognac-hued leather finish will age gracefully and complement an array of interior schemes.


About the Designer: 

Larsen and Bender Madsen became acquainted at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Their acquaintance developed into a lifelong friendship, and in 1947 they began to design together in their spare time. Together, the duo developed a number of Danish classics – over 300 designs in total - always working in a clean, simple style that produced timeless designs.
