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 midcentury 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 durable twill upholstery with attention to the original intricate design detail.
The year was 1945 and Finn Juhl had just released the original model 45 chair. The 45 was a break from the traditional armchair 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 windswept 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. An ash 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.
Twill is an interwoven knit fabric. The thread takes turns in an over and under weave forming a crooked yet overall lineal rectangle pattern that can be discerned at close range. The pattern exists but appears somewhat random when viewed from a normal distance. Vintage Tailored Twill features a finer, tightly tailored flat weave appearance. Vintage Tailored Twill provides perhaps a more refined, tailored appearance than that of a typical coarse twill. It relies on the multi-tone nature of the fabric strands themselves to provide the appearance of depth of texture.
The natural wood presents lighter cooler tones. Natural ash is prized for its clean grain that mixes well with modernist furniture styles.
