Kaare Klint (1888 – 1954)
Kaare Klint worked as apprentice with his father, Peder Vilhelm Klint who in collaboration with architect Carl Petersen designed the Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen. And this was how Kaare Klint was introduced to and learned about the tradition of Danish workmanship realism
In 1914, he collaborated with Carl Petersen who designed Faaborg Museum. Klint was appointed to design furniture for the Museum. This cooperation resulted among other things in an armchair, more known as the Faaborg chair, which today is considered to have formed an introduction to the new era in Danish furniture design.
Founding the department of Furniture Design and Interior decoration at the Academy of Fine Arts, Klint received great recognition with his epoch-making teaching as well as he shaped the development of furniture design in Denmark.
Klint's furniture designs meant a radical renewal of Danish furniture design. With a focus on a clear and logical construction accounted Klint furniture where nothing superfluous was present only honest, clean lines of unrivalled materials.
Due to his furniture’s’ simple functional qualities the timeless design and uncompromising unit of execution, many of his furniture are more sought after than ever.
His most acclaimed designs: The Faaborg-chair or the Frame-chair designed for Faaborg Museum in 1914. The Safari-chair (1933) and the Church chair was designed in 1930 for the Bethlehems church in Copenhagen - the first church benches with chairs.
