#17 “Where did you go”  Here we strike a blue note for the “Bow” grand piano by Poul Henningsen. In the 1930s the Master of Light managed to also design arguably the most sculptural grand pianos of all times. all for the maker Andreas Christensen. Pieces Where the value lies so clearly in its design rather than in its quality as a musical instrument Yet this “Bow” model never caught on and has yet to re-surface. Funny to see how well it would play in a sale..#masteroflight #poulhenningsen #ph #danishdesign #1930s #bow #grandpiano #danishmodernism #danishmodern #nordicdesign #jazzage #bluenote #artdeco #andreaschristensen

#16 “Where did you go ?” We are back in the mid 1930s and the early days of Danish modernism. The architect and later professor and principal of the Royal Academy of Arts Palle Suenson is in the period involved with a face-lift of the Danish Bank Privatbanken. He designs a new modern look for several branches including the interiors with furniture and all. Through the modern glass door we find this tubular steel chair in the lobby with nice padded leather seat. The only comparable Danish chair I have seen was a contemporary Mogens Lassen that passed my way some years ago. Where the Nordea bank has deposited these chairs remains unknown - I guess the dumpster could be the answer..#pallesuenson #danishmodernism #1935 #1930s #bauhausstyle #privatbanken #danishdesign #nordicdesign #danishmodern

Xmas day 2017 in Denmark. All is grey and green outside. Much like this 1917 early Danish modernist painting with elements of cubism. Painted by Jørgen Johannesen it shows Frederiksberg castle in the back with the park and pond in the front.  100 years on still a favorite..#danishweather #greysky #cubism #modernism #klassiskmodernisme #jørgenjohannesen #frederiksberghave #frederiksborgslot #1917

Kaare Klint | 7. As a designer, architect, teacher and curator, Kaare Klint played a pivotal role in the development of one of the most popular  design movements of the 20th century, Danish modernism. By combining the efficiency of technological advances with the warmth and comfort of natural materials and craft techniques, Klint and his contemporaries humanised the modernist style, thereby ensuring that appealed to a wider audience, especially in culturally conservative countries like the UK and US. Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Verner Panton and other younger Danish designers were all influenced and inspired by Klint, even if they expressed his values differently. The clarity and sincerity of his approach to design has proved remarkably enduring at a time when design is becoming increasingly elastic and eclectic as it expands into ever more diverse fields. Klint’s underlying values of utility, economy, sensitivity and rigour, and his belief in design’s power to help us to build a better world, are evident in the social, humanitarian and ecological design projects that now define Danish design, like the pioneering Cycle Super Highway network that courses through Copenhagen. #design #socialdesign #sustainabledesign #kaareklint #danishmodernism #nordicmodernism #copenhagencyclesuperhighway

Kaare Klint | 6. Just as he modernised the Shaker #7 chair into the Church Chair, Kaare Klint did the same for the foldable chairs with canvas seats and backs he had spotted in photographs of a friend on safari. He embarked on an intensive development process to ensure that the Safari Chair, as he called it, would be as strong, light, compact and durable as possible. Klint paid particular attention to the joints, which were designed to be made without glue and to tighten whenever anyone sat down, thereby making the chair suppler, yet stronger. He unveiled the finished design at an exhibition of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild in 1933. The Safari Chair has remained in production at Carl Hansen & Son in Copenhagen ever since with a solid wooden frame, a leather or canvas seat and back, and saddle leather armrests. #design #furnituredesign #kaareklint #safarichair #kk47000 #carlhansenandson #danishmodernism #nordicmodernism

Kaare Klint | 5. Whenever Kaare Klimt found an interesting piece of furniture, he’d take it to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts to discuss it with his students. Among his favourites was a seemingly simple wooden chair with a ‘ladder-back’ of horizontal supports made in the furniture workshop of the Shaker community at Mount Lebanon in New York State. The chair, identified as a #7 in the Mount Lebanon mail order catalogue was made in the late 1800s and arrived in Denmark in 1927. The Shakers prided themselves on the economy, modesty, precision, usefulness and durability of everything they made: all qualities that appealed to Klint. Having made a rigorous analysis of the Shaker chair, he applied aspects of its form and structure to his own work in furniture design. Klint’s research culminated in the beautiful Church Chair that he designed in the 1930s to furnish his father’s architectural masterpiece, Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen. #design #architecture #kaareklint #churchchair #grundtvigschurch #shakerdesign #shaker#7 #danishmodernism #nordicmodernism

Kaare Klint | 4. After the success of the Faaborg Chair, Kaare Klint was in steady demand as a furniture designer, and by the mid-1920s, was forging a parallel career as a design teacher and curator. Together with Thorkild Henningsen and Ivar Bentsen, he was charged with converting a beautiful rococo building in Copenhagen, the mid-18th century Fredriks Hospital, into a new home for the Danish Museum of the Arts and Design, now Designmuseum Denmark. As well as contributing to the building, Klint designed the furniture and interiors, including this library. He then emerged as an important influence over the museum’s programme, using exhibitions, lectures and acquisitions for the collection as means of raising public awareness of his vision of modern design and craftsmanship. Klint did the same at Denmark’s most prestigious art and architecture school, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where he founded a department of furniture and spatial design in 1923, and was appointed professor the following year. An inspiring and dedicated teacher, Klint taught and mentored a succession of gifted young designers and makers, including Poul Kjaerholm and Borge Møgensen. Many of them went on to become successful teachers in their own right, and to instil Klint’s design principles in subsequent generations. Klint insisted that his students should start the design process with rigorous research into the details of how the object or environment would be used and should be constructed, yet he also encouraged them to define their own design languages, rather than imitating his. #design #architecture #kaareklint #danishmodernism #danishdesignmuseum #royaldanishacademyoffinearts #scandinavianmodernism #nordicmodernism

Kaare Klint | 3. When the Danish industrialist, Mars Rasmussen, decided to open a museum to display his collection of the work of the Funen Painters, a colony of artists who lived on the island of the same name, he commissioned one of Denmark’s leading architects, Carl Petersen to design the building. Petersen asked an assistant, Kaare Klint, to work with him on a collection of furniture for the new museum in 1914. Together they developed sofas, tables, desks, cabinets and a clock, though Petersen allowed Klint to design a series of chairs and stools for use by visitors in the galleries and archive on his own. The seats needed to be comfortable to sit on, yet light enough to be moved so people could perch in front of particular paintings and study them at length. Klint’s solution is considered to be the first example of modern Danish design by combining the traditional qualities of fine craftsmanship and the natural beauty of the oak, walnut or mahogany used in the frame, and the leather and cane in the upholstery with a formal simplicity defined by the chair’s intended function and the need to ensure that it did not detract from the exhibits. Fourteen of Klint’s chairs and seven accompanying stools were made as the first edition. The Faaborg Chair, as it is called, was an instant success when the museum opened in 1915, and has been used there ever since.

Kaare Klint | 2. The greatest single influence on Kaare Klint was his redoutable father Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint. Talented, determined and resourceful, Peder started out by studying  structural engineering only to reinvent himself as an artist. Sadly, he earnt so little money from art that he taught maths to make ends meet. By 1889, a year after Kaare’s birth, he changed course to work for Copenhagen’s city engineer, and then turned to architecture after being asked to design the homes of various friends. Peder treated each project as an opportunity to experiment with different materials, mostly bricks, which one of his teachers, Johan Daniel Herbolt, had popularised in his design of the Copenhagen Municipal Library. Peder used bricks to reconstruct the sturdy, geometric forms of historic Danish manor houses and churches. By the early 1910s, he was being commissioned to design churches as well as houses, and combined them both in his best known project, the colossal yellow brick Grundtvig’s Church and the surrounding housing in the Bispebjerg area of Copenhagen. Peder won a competition to design them in 1913, but construction ceased during World War I, and most of the work was conducted in the 1920s. The same size as Copenhagen Cathedral, Grundtvig’s Church was a huge endeavour. Peder travelled throughout Denmark to study Gothic village churches, their aesthetics and construction techniques. He drew on those historic influences in his design of the Grundtvig’s Church, while affirming its modernity in the geometric yellow brick structure, bereft of decoration. Peder died in 1930 before his masterwork was completed, and Kaare finished the building for him. #design #architecture #kaareklint #pedervilhelmjensenklint #grundtvigschurch #danishmodernism #scandinavianmodernism #nordicmodernism

Kaare Klint | 1. This week’s posts will be on the pioneer of Danish modernism, the designer and architect Kaare Klint, to mark the anniversary on Friday of his birth on 15 December 1888. The son of the artist-turned-architect, Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, the young Kaare was apprenticed to a furniture maker after leaving school. He then studied at a specialist furniture school in Copenhagen, before working for the architect Carl Petersen. When Petersen won the commission to design the new Faaborg Museum on the Danish island of Funen, Kaare designed his first piece, a chair, especially for the project. As a furniture designer, architect, teacher and curator, he not only played a defining role in modernising the traditional Danish values of utility, economy, restraint, humanism, and respect for nature during the first half of the 20th century, but encouraged and empowered the next generation of Scandinavian designers to do so too. #design #architecture #kaareklint #pedervilhelmjensenklint #carlpetersen @faaborgmuseum #danishmodernism #scandinavianmodernism #nordicmodernism

Unfortunately on our visit to St Catherine's, Oxford we weren't able to view the library or lecture theatre, but we did manage to sneak a couple of photos of the grand dining hall. The hall can seat up to 350 diners and thus has the largest capacity of any Oxford college. Next time we will try to get shots of the high-backed 'Oxford' chairs designed exclusively for the college by Jacobsen, but note here the continued use of wood, concrete, brick and glass with the addition of Cumberland slate on the floor. #arnejacobsen #stcatherinescollegeoxford #stcatz #stcatzdininghall #series7chair #fritzhansen #danishdesign #danishmodernism #midcenturymodern #functionalism #modernisttouristsvisit #modernistdining

Yesterday we braved the rain and made a pilgrimage to St Catherine's College, Oxford - Arne Jacobsen's modernist masterpiece. The college was officially opened in 1962 and received Grade1 listing in 1993. Jacobsen designed everything inside the buildings from the furniture, clocks, lighting down to the cutlery used in the dining hall. The gardens were also designed by Jacobsen as he was a keen nature enthusiast. Despite the weather the buildings and gardens created a harmonious and peaceful atmosphere. The functionalist architecture with its perfect right angles throughout is enhanced by the meticulously chosen vegetation. It was a wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon! #arnejacobsen #stcatherinescollegeoxford #stcatz #functionalism #danishmodernism #1962 #barbarahepworth #oxford  #modernisttouristsvisit #modernism

Stu-stu-studio.
These wall mounted Studio lamps were designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen around 1936 and made especially for the broadcasting studios at Radiohuset, which he as well was the architect on.
Originally mounted at the entrance of the studios with a green and red light bulb respectively showing wether the current studio was occupied and on air or open for access.
Made in both nickel-plated metal and brass and both with a opal glass shade. The brass model is the most desired. Manufactured by Louis Poulsen as model 10630.
More about these lamps on my blog page.

The resulting design features a top rail shaped as a coat hanger and box seat for storage.

Look at this one.
A unknown two-headed lamp in brushed brass, designed by Finn Juhl in 1950 for the FN building in New York, which he as well was the architect on.
Needless to say I would love a couple of these at my place.

Arne Jacobsen designed The Ant Chair in 1952 for the canteen at Novo Nordisk.
At first the people at Fritz Hansen didn't believe in the chair due to the contruction. Arne Jacobsen him self offered to buy any chairs they couldn't sell and then the chair was put in production.
Jacobsen was with this design inspired by Eames' LMC Chair. Furthermore The Ant, which was the first in line of Jacobsens many iconic shell chairs from the 50's, was at first made with three legs. In 1971 the four legged version was oficially launched.
More about the chair on my blog page.

A moment of perfection. So simple, but so good #itsthelittlethings. I'm sitting in the car waiting for my daughter to finish her ballet class. - But it's warm, and quiet, and the sun is going down creating an amazing golden glow, and I'm finding some time to read, and I'm reading about this most amazing guy - Finn Juhl, and I'm soaking in the awesomeness of good design, and I'm thinking about how good design is timeless, and I'm dreaming that one day I might go visit his home turned museum in Denmark.

OLAF RUDE
.
A very strong and powerful Olaf Rude work from the exhibition "The Flower and the Cigar. Modernism from ARoS" at GL STRAND in Copenhagen years ago. The exhibition was perfectly (in my opinion) curated by Lennart Gottlieb and was about Modernism in Denmark in the first half of the 20th century. The title of the painting is "Saint George and the Dragon" (1918) and belongs to ARoS Art Museum.
