Widely regarded as the first Danish modern design classic, the Faaborg Chair 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 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. The chair is crafted from solid wood and features handwoven French canework on the rounded backrest.

Kaare Klint

Kaare Klint (1888-1954) was an iconic furniture designer, educator and visionary who made his mark on Danish design history. He inspired the greatest Danish furniture designers and architects – including Hans J. Wegner, Mogens Koch, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm. He is regarded as a reformer: as one of the first designers to put functionalism and the practical study of architecture and furniture design principles above style. He insisted on clear, logical design, clean lines, the best materials, and superb craftsmanship. In 1949, he became an Honorary Royal Designer for Industry in London.
