(Publishers review) 'Design became the cultural phenomenon that put Denmark on the world map in the middle of the 20th century. The Danish Design brand originated in 1949, when American journalists began writing about Danish furniture from the Snedkerlauget's furniture exhibition in Copenhagen. They called Hans J. Wegner's "The Round Chair" "The Chair". It was not only the start of a great export adventure, but also a challenge for the Danish designers, who became world-renowned for their obsession with creating the perfect chair.
The chair is the touchstone of designers and the favorite object of design historians. It touches and mirrors the body it has to carry with arms, legs, seat and back. And then the chair is one of our most culture-bearing design objects, and tells about the time and the society in which it was created. The book's special touch is that it will show in words, drawings and pictures that Danish chairs are based on historical furniture types, which refined and refined endlessly. The message and the explanation for the international success of Danish furniture art is that Danish furniture art is based on foreign cultures and on the best creations of earlier times.'
