Grace Lounge Chair

By Tove Kindt Larsen

An elegant, organic and harmonious compendium of curves, the Grace Chair by Tove Kindt-Larsen leads the contemporary revival of the sustainable and natural rattan material. Inspired by the soft curves of pebbles and driftwood she would collect from the beaches of northern Denmark, architect and designer Kindt-Larsen’s envisioned a graceful refinement of the informal rattan lounge chair. With its sweeping, gentle curves and intricate loops of flexible rattan, it supports a generous, upholstered seat and envelopes a plump, loose back cushion. Together they bring a comfort, tactility and and lightness that brings the outdoors inside, while the characteristics of the rattan frame give it a natural robustness and longevity. The timeless beauty of Tove Kindt-Larsen’s 1936 design and the sustainability of the rattan material make the Grace Chair a highly versatile and popular addition to the GUBI collection. With a choice of upholstery options available, it can add light and texture to a home and an informal yet elegant welcome to hotel or business interiors.

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.

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.
