KADK teaching collection of chairs

For Kultur Natten, KADK - Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademis Skoler for Arkitektur, Design og Konservering - the Royal Academy School - opened their teaching collection of chairs. In the space above the main entrance, the amazing collection includes examples of Danish classic designs from the 20th century along with chairs from the Netherlands, other European countries and the USA. Many of the pieces have been clearly well used and must have been donated by individuals and curiously, the knocks and marks on some, made them more rather than less interesting for judging the designs. After all, these chairs were designed and made to be used … not to be set as a pristine example behind glass in a museum.
