Great Danes

Monday, 21 March 2011

Whilst working in Lebanon at the beginning of the sixties, Danish architect Jørgen Kastholm took inspiration from seeing a Turkish sword and teamed up with fellow Dane and architect Preben Fabricius to design the Scimitar chair.  The chair's base is created by pouring molten metal into three individual ceramic moulds  before welding each section together to form its beautiful and unusual shape.  The Scimitar chair, dating from 1963, was first shown to the public at an exhibition at Copenhagen's Museum of Industrial Arts.
