Dansk Møbelkunst Gallery specializes in rare, original works of Danish furniture that were created during 1920-70, when a circle of craftsmen, architects and designers erased the distinction between works of art and functional equipment for everyday life.
This pair of very rare easy chairs were part of a small selection of pieces commissioned by Publisher Poul Westermann in 1944. The model is considered to be the forerunner for Finn Juhl’s iconic ‘NV45’ chair
