Description

Dansk Møbelkunst

The Propeller stool, designed in 1933 by the father of Danish Modernism; Kaare Klint, made by Cabinetmakers' Rudolf Rasmussen, Copenhagen. For a person with a mathematically inclined intellect like Klint, the dream of something that was perfectly collapsible or foldable was a constant challenge – and hence the motive behind the present stool. The lines of the unfolded stool unequivocally illustrate the stools function; at the same time they are almost dramatic. When it is closed, however, the form of the stool is whole and calm. Ingenious in its simplicity the stool is renowned as a Danish design icon.
