Summerhouse
Island of Læsø, Denmark

The summerhouse on Læsø is a poetic reinterpretation of the vernacular architecture present on the island between Sweden and Denmark. This summerhouse is exemplary of how Kjærholm considered architecture as a harmonious whole in which materials, the interplay of daylight and interior decoration should be carefully thought out.

Teak Lounge Easy Chair
Produced by France & Søn, Rynkeby, Denmark

From the 1950s, Grete Jalk designed a series of chairs exploring the possibilities of laminated wood and in 1960, France & Søns, one of Denmark´s greatest makers of furniture, produced an armchair made with wood frame that has sultry flared armrests and the Danish cable back which virtually disappears, giving the impression of a floating back cushion.

Hanging Egg Chair
Produced by Sika Design, Rynkeby, Denmark

Nanna and Jørgen didn’t need to get out of their home to find inspiration for her work. A close attention to the daily life, to the details that make up the domestic and familiar environment, combined with an abiding concern for comfort and freedom of movement led to the accurate perception that the opulent furniture that surrounded them was highly inadequate for the small post-war homes.
