Carl Hansen KK37580 large chair red
The KK37580 Large Red Chair designed by Kaare Klint in 1927 won international acclaim when showcased at the Danish Museum of Art and Design and the Danish Pavilion at the Barcelona International Exposition in 1929.
Klint firmly believed that classic, long-existing forms and structures could and should inspire contemporary design. In developing his Red Chair Series, he carefully studied several English chair designs, including the Chippendale, combining elements to create a new construction with a modern expression and excellent support.
Klint also designed the Large Red Chair with armrests for the Danish Prime Minister Thorvald Stauning’s office at the Christiansborg Palace, and developed the Small Red Chair and the Medium Red Chair to fit a variety of different tables.
