dansk møbeldesign. arne jacobsen and poul kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen

WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse


As part of its focal programme “Design History of the 20th Century”, the WAGNER:WERK Museum is showing the revolutionary furniture designs of Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjaerholm produced over the decades by the Danish company of Fritz Hansen. Both designers substantiate the non-dogmatic attitude of Scandinavian furniture design, which adapts smoothly to different architectural styles – less a question of designing complete interiors than far more of producing variably applicable and combinable individual pieces. In this, Jacobsen and Kjaerholm are closer to the Viennese modernism of a Josef Frank than the uncompromising quality of the Weimar Bauhaus.
'dansk møbeldesign' can be viewed from 1 October to 17 November 2012.
