The leather type "Thor" is a semi-aniline ox hide with a natural grain and a coated surface.

More uniform hides are chosen for this type of leather. It has a largely uniform surface structure with some visible scars or other marks. After aniline dying, a pigmentation coat is added to give perfect color uniformity. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer.

This type of leather has a good touch and low breathability. The advantages of "Thor" leather are that it requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight.

We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want a good balance between maintenance and comfort.

"Thor"-leather is available in many colors. We recommend you to contact your local dealer for experiencing the complete collection.

The leather type "Sif" is a full grain, uncoated pure aniline ox hide.

Only the very finest hides are chosen. The tanning and dying processes are one and the same. No final pigmentation or coating are applied, so slight variations within hides and between hides may occur.

"Sif"-leather has the most exclusive touch and the highest breathability. It has the most natural surface structure which is why scars or other marks may be visible.

Be aware that the light or vegetal colors will age with patina and grace - however, they are also very susceptible to stains. The darker colors will fade somewhat if exposed to sunlight for a longer period of time.

We recommend this type of leather for those who want the very best comfort and quality, and who love the graceful ageing of the very best leather.

First in the series was the Red Chair in a Large edition (1927), created especially for the lecture hall of the new Danish Museum of Art and Design, and shown at the Danish Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition.

Klint believed that long-existing archetypes could and should inform contemporary design. In developing his Red Chair Series, he studied several English chair designs, including the Chippendale, combining elements to create a new construction with a modern expression and excellent support.

Klint continued to work on the series adding two narrower versions - The Red Chair Small (1928) and The Red Chair Medium (1933) to comfortably fit various dining tables, making The Red Chair available in three different sizes. The series also features a variant with armrests (1930).

Passionate craftsmanship means many things to different people. To Carl Hansen it means everything. It has been so ever since 1908 when Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today they continue to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.

Kaare Klint

Denmark 1888-1954

Kaare Klint (1888-1954), the man behind classics such as the Safari Chair and the Safari Footrest, is considered the father of Danish furniture design. For Kaare Klint, the son of architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, exposure to architecture was a natural part of his early development. However, it was primarily as a furniture designer that Kaare Klint made his mark on Danish architecture.

Kaare Klint was born in 1888 in Frederiksberg and designed his first furniture in 1914, for the Faaborg Museum. From the beginning, Klint's furniture was characterized by harmony between his choice of form and materials, often inspired by earlier styles or other cultures.

Klint helped found the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Furniture School in 1923, and was appointed professor there in 1924. In this role, he inspired and taught a number of prominent Danish furniture designers, who went on to pave the way for the golden age of Danish design, from 1945 to 1975.

Kaare Klint also founded the Furniture and Spatial Design Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where he employed a teaching method considered radical in his day. He asked students to construct furniture items from the inside out, based on thorough pre-analysis. The outward style was less significant; instead, the focus was on function analysis, choice of materials, and material processing.

Klint's influence led to a comprehensive renewal of Danish furniture design. He demanded clear and logical structures, with nothing superficial - only honest, pure lines, the best materials, and genuine craftsmanship.
