Illustrious Norwegian interior designer Fredrik Kayser is known for his classic, Danish Modern-influenced style that combines practicality with elegance as seen particularly in his chairs.
Fredrik Kayser’s Model 711 (1960; Emerson Sofa in various armchair or seater options) stands out amongst his body of award-winning work and has retained its light, timeless looks over the years, fitting in both traditional and contemporary decors. The clean and subtly-curved lines of the chair are given substance and enhanced by the solid wood.
The sofa shown above is a replica.
Charles and Ray Eames' Molded Plastic Chairs (1948-1950) were the first plastic chairs to be industrially manufactured, including the Desmond Chair, the Rada Armchair and the Maja Rocking Chair with its uncovered, cup-like seats and iconic wood and wire rocker bases.
The Panton Chair (1957-1967; S Chair) by experimental Danish designer Verner Panton is part of the Danish Culture Canon and has withstood the vicissitudes of popularity over time, in part thanks to supermodel Kate Moss who posed nude on it on the cover of British Vogue.
Norman Cherner is most famous for his shapely molded plywood Cherner Chair (1958; Cherie Chair) that he designed for manufacturer Plycraft. He ended up suing Plycraft in 1961 when he discovered that the owner had unceremoniously lied to him and stolen his design to produce it under his own name.
