With its arms, legs, seat and back, the chair is the piece of furniture that has the closest resemblance to the human body it is built to carry. It is recognised as a symbol of the status and identity of the person sitting in it and, like a work of art, it reflects the age and society in which it was created. Consequently, the exhibition The Danish Chair displays each chair individually as distinct works of art. However, the exhibition also clearly visualises how Danish designers learnt from, and built on, their predecessors’ designs. The exhibition is designed by architect Boris Berlin and curated by Christian Holmsted Olesen, head of exhibitions and collections.
