Faaborg Chair anniversary
Danish furniture workshop Rud. Rasmussen is observing the 100th birthday of the Faaborg Chair with a special limited edition release.

Designed by Kaare Klint—the widely acknowledged father of Danish Modernism—the Faaborg Chair was a 1915 creation for Denmark’s Faaborg Museum, its graceful form defined by a burr wood frame and semi-circle of French rattan. Rud. Rasmussen, the longtime manufacturer of the Faaborg Chair, has prepared two separate tributes in honor of the chair’s 100th birthday, only one of which will be offered for sale.

A 10-piece suite of chairs, each crafted from the wood of a single elm—harvested 25 years ago, and lying in wait for just such a momentous occasion—will feature a seat made of rattan to match its back and sides, and will be part of a traveling exhibition.

The anniversary edition, which features 100 numbered chairs, showcasing walnut wood and black leather upholstery, can be snapped up by modern design buffs later this year—marking, in the words of Rud. Rasmussen CEO, David Obel Rosenkvist, ‘…the perfect occasion to pay tribute to Denmark’s first modern design classic, created by the father of Danish furniture design.’
