JACOB KJÆR (Denmark, 1896-1957). Pair of armchairs, ca. 1950. Rosewood and original leather upholstery. They show wear and tear, especially the upholstery. Measurements: 77 x 59 x 55 cm. Pair of armchairs designed by Jacob Kjaer with rosewood structure and black leather upholstery. The exposed wood traces a right angle in the armrests, describing the same line with the front legs, so that the soft and enveloping leather seat is balanced with this modern structure. However, the pure lines are softened by the warmth of a wood that shows off its qualities and grain. Jacob Kjær was a Danish furniture designer and cabinetmaker. Kjær trained as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of his father, who was also a furniture maker. After completing his training in Berlin and Paris, he exhibited works at the 1929 Barcelona Universal Exposition. Characterized by simplicity, his designs were based on the finest materials. Inspired by classic English style, his clean, elegant designs are of modern interpretation. He did much to enhance the reputation of the Danish furniture industry as president of the Cabinetmakers' Guild from 1952 to 1957 and of the Arts and Crafts Committee for Exports from 1944 to 1957. One of his most notable works is the FN chair designed for use in the United Nations Building in New York City.
