Set of 2 Lounge Chairs by Kai Lyngfeld Larsen in Teak, Denmark, 1960's

$ 3,550
  • Description
    Famous model 501 teak lounge chair, also known as the 'Japan' chair, for Søborg Møbler by Kai Lyngfeld Larsen.
    Very comfortable and sturdy set of 2 lounge chairs, that can also be used as modules to create a smaller benche or one larger for example (4 pieces availabel). The teak is still very good and has a good strong colour. The chair has nice details such as she tapered legs and the punchy feet that form a good balance against the somewhat straighter lines of the backrest. If you look at them from behind you will see that they are definitely not uninteresting to be put in the middle of a room. The rounded crossbeams work very well in this chair and give them the Japanese look.

    Some interesting info about Sobørg Møbelfabrik:

    Danish furniture manufacturer Søborg Møbelfabrik was founded in 1890 by cabinetmaker Jacob E. Jacobsen. Dedicated to producing consistently high-quality furniture that showcased the Danish design tradition, Søborg Møbelfabrik, which was managed by generation after generation of the Jacobsen family, has worked with some of Denmark’s most celebrated midcentury furniture designers.

    Located in the suburbs of Copenhagen, the traditional cabinetmaking workshop established by Jacob Jacobsen was modernized by his sons Arne (1899-1977, no relation to the midcentury designer Arne Jacobsen) and Orla (1895-1980) when they took over in 1930. They collaborated with several important cabinetmakers, architects, and burgeoning designer talents over the midcentury period, including Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) & Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993), Mogens Lassen (1901-1987), Børge Mogensen (1914-1972), and Bernt Petersen (1937-2017).

    Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, Søborg Møbelfabrik participated in the annual exhibitions held by the Copenhagen Guild of Joiners. In 1942, architect Mogens Lassen designed a solid mahogany stool in a sculpted semicircle shape for the Guild of Joiners' furniture exhibition at the Museum of Industrial Art in Copenhagen. Other notable designs for Søborg include Mogensen’s King of Diamonds Chair (1944) and Chinese Cabinet (also 1944, exhibited at the Guild of Joiners) and Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen’s No. 302 cabinet, No. 309a sideboard, No. 311 dining set, and No. 316 and 317 chairs (all 1950s).

    In 1976, designer Christian Hvidt (b. 1946) collaborated with Søborg, creating several designs for home and office furniture. His SM03, SM76, and SM200 wall units are among his most renowned designs.
