Kaare Klint’s furniture hold a special position in the story of modern Danish design. Several decades after their creation, iconic works such as Klint’s Red Chair Series, sofas and Faaborg Chair are still highly sought-after pieces, as they laid the foundation for the Danish Modern phenomenon worldwide.
As a teacher and co-founder of the Department of Furniture Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, established in 1924, Klint inspired a new generation of designers, including Arne Jacobsen, Mogens Koch and Poul Kjærholm. Today, Klint 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 redefined a period otherwise characterized by style-focused academic teaching.
