Copenhagen '45 Mid-Century Modern Chair
A well recognized icon of mid-century modern design. Free flowing, airy and elegant in concept. The original series was created in 1945 by Danish mid century modern furniture designer Finn Juhl. In handcrafting this mid-century modern masterpiece, the Kardiel Copenhagen '45 combines quality material such as solid American Ash timbers and Genuine Italian Leather upholstery with attention to the original intricate design detail.
Making the Icon
The year was 1945 and Finn Juhl had just released the original model 45 chair. The 45 was a break from the traditional arm chair in that the seat and back were freed by design from the frame of the chair. A floating visual from all angles and an architecturally intriguing frame were the bi-products of this newly found freedom. Like the original, this exceptional reproduction features a solid timber American Ash frame. Finn achieved the drawn out wind swept appearance by drawing the arms upward and forward while the mid seat frame section draws down and toward the back. Comfort is achieved through the foam wrapped and upholstered foam frame and plush multi-density seat cushion.
The subtle curve of the back follows the original intent and provides a seating experience that surrounds and cradles with comfort. The soft sculptural flow is achieved with rotated round timbers that arch and curve at select points rather than ending at sharp 90 degree edges. True to the original, natural solid American Ash is used to create the frame. A walnut stain & clear polyurethane finish is applied. The 45 is a complicated piece to reproduce with numerous details crucial to the success of the overall design.
Genuine Italian Leather
High grade Italian leather is used on all surfaces of the Copenhagen '45 Wood chair.
Italian Leather is a grade class above the standard grade leather. Realistic leather graining and a softer surface to the touch results in a more comfortable lounging experience.
