The flexibility of rattan – its ability to be bent and shaped at will – is at the heart of Tove Kindt-Larsen’s vision for the Grace Chair.

BALANCE OF ELEGANCE AND INFORMALITY

 

The rattan flexes under the weight of the sitter, adding another layer of support as it adapts to the contours of the body. The result is a daring balance of elegance and informality, resulting in a piece that will make a bold statement as it casts playful shadows across any interior space while welcoming those who regularly curl up inside it like an old friend.

It's natural robustness helps ensure that the chair has longevity – this coupled with the care that goes into its craftsmanship means that the Grace Chair might survive for a century or more.

TOVE KINDT-LARSEN

 

Tove Kindt-Larsen (née Reddersen, 1906-1994) was one of the first female designers to emerge during Denmark’s ‘Golden Era’ in the mid-twentieth century. An architect by training, with several years of furniture design under her belt, she embarked on a furniture design course at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, under the ‘godfather of Danish design’ Kaare Klint.

Her furniture was characterized by a fine sense of quality and a design language that responded to evolving tastes of the time. She was an early pioneer in rattan chairs and the use of molded plywood and well as moving away from designing room sets and instead conceiving individual pieces of furniture so that homeowners could curate their own spaces.
