Set of 6 Razorblade Dining Chairs by Henning Kjaernulf, Denmark, 1960s

US$4,200per set

About

Henning Kjaernulf’s Razorblade chairs are the designer’s most distinctive designs. This set was manufactured by the Danish company EG Kvalitetsmobel in the 1960s, making it a true Danish midcentury set. It is easy to see where the nickname of these chairs stems from. The slightly curved backrests are razorblade-shaped, an unparalleled design feature. The chairs are visually stimulating, featuring both angular and rounded shapes. The style and shape of the legs and frame recall an almost Baroque design, which is paired with Scandinavian modernism, an uncommon yet impressive combination. The natural wood grain and color is complemented by the blue fabric of the seats. The set has been recently reupholstered in a premium blue colored linen fabric. Condition: Items have some small marks, scratches, and minor watermarks. The wood has a beautiful patina. Items have recently been re-upholstered in a premium linen fabric. Dimensions: 25 in W x 24.60 in D x 33.46 in H, seat height 17.91 in 63.5 cm W x 62.5 cm D x 85 cm H, seat height 45.5 cm About the designer: Danish midcentury designer and architect, Henning Kjaernulf is somewhat of a mystery. A lot more is known about his designs than Kjaernulf himself. His wooden designs, crafted to perfection, speak for themselves. Kjaernulf mainly designed for the Danish manufacturers EG Kvalitetsmobel, Nyrup Møbelfabrik, and Vejle Stole Møbelfabrik. The latter produced the designer’s well-known teak extending dining table design. The historic archives of the Danish municipality, Stenlille, reveal the history of Nyrup Møbelfabrik, mentioning Kjaernulf’s architectural designs for the company’s factory, referring to him as an architect based in Odense, Denmark. Kjaernulf’s works reveal quality craftsmanship throughout, featuring clean Danish modern era lines with sculpted edges and shapes. The unique shapes, like his razorblade chair backrests, distinguish the designer from other Danish midcentury designers. In light of how sought after his dining sets and lounge chairs are, it remains a mystery why so little is known about the designer. The curious background of Kjaernulf if anything, adds more charm to his pieces. Shipping: This set of razor blade dining chairs will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to make sure you will receive the items in gallery condition. Complimentary shipping within the Netherlands.
