Widely regarded as the first Danish modern design classic, the Faaborg Chair Kaare Klint designed in 1914 ushered in a new era for Danish design, creating a foundation for the Danish Modern phenomenon that emerged onto the global stage in the 1950s.
The young Klint meticulously considered every aspect of the Faaborg Chair to ensure it fulfilled its intended function, arriving at a light and portable solution that allowed Faaborg museum visitors to position the chair before artworks they wished to study in greater detail.
The Faaborg Chair's unadorned design and the unity between its structure, materials and function set it apart from its predecessors while showcasing Klint's traditional design values and modern approach.
