Known as the father of Danish Modernism, Kaare Klint dared to reduce his forms to their essential. Working with carefully measured proportions and leaving nothing to chance, Klint executed his designs using fine and high quality materials such as Cuban Mahogany and Niger leather. Bucking the trend of highly polished woods and dyed leathers popular at the time, Klint choose to leave the materials as close to their original state as possible, as noted again by Ole Wanscher: 'It seems so easy to make things which are genuine and simple... but this is not true in the furniture trade. Here it is still something of a feat to be natural.'
The present model was exhibited at the 'Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild', Industriforeningen, Copenhagen, 16 September–1 October 1933, Stands 15 and 16.
