Description Only a total of four known examples exist, two of them are a set of mirrored twins and together form a heart shape and are used for wedding couples when the marry at the Ringsted city hall. The back is high on one side to provide support for the shoulders and then drops steeply to satisfy the need for a place to rest one's elbow, an inclination we all have after sitting a while. For the same reason one armrest is only half the height of the other. A high armrest is uncomfortable if one wishes to sit with one's leg over the side of the chair. Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen Steen Eiler Rasmussen is best known as a town planner.
