KK53130 | Easy Chair

The Copenhagen Saddlemakers' and Upholsterers' Guild's 475th anniversary in 1935 offered Kaare Klint an opportunity to showcase his excellent upholstery skills.

Designed by Kaare Klint.


Kaare Klint submitted four distinct designs to the Copenhagen Saddlemakers' and Upholsterers' Guild's celebratory competition under the title "Christmas 1934": the Red Chair with armrests; a sofa bed upholstered with Greek fabric; a sectional sofa; and the elegant, upholstered Easy Chair featuring a loose, down-filled seat cushion.

Lauded as a very modern contribution due to its precise, tight lines and composition, the Easy Chair was produced for the 1937 Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition.

The frame is crafted from solid wood and the seat/back is upholstered with leather.

His teaching and designs were radical at the time as he focused heavily on functional analysis, the best materials and uncompromising craftsmanship.
