Check out our wonderful and diverse world of chairs. We’ll tell the story of how Danish design became an international brand. Learn more about the many types of chairs that illustrate the 20th-century Danish success story and the export adventure we call Danish Modern.
The chair is the piece of furniture that is closest to human beings. It touches and reflects the body that sits on it, with arms, legs, seat and back. It is a designer's touchstone and design history's favourite object. And the chair is one of the most culture-bearing design objects.
It tells almost everything about the time and the culture it was created for. It gives the person that sits in it a status and identity, and its connection with royalty, judges, bishops, writers and other specific roles reminds us of the many historical associations with chairs.
