KAI KRISTIANSEN BIO

Danish designer Kai Kristiansen was born in 1929. Like many of Denmark’s design greats, he apprenticed in cabinetmaking before enrolling—around 1948—in the prestigious Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen under the highly influential designer Kaare Klint. At the age of 26, Kristiansen opened his own studio and began to create furniture in what would soon became known as the Danish modern style. His designs would be produced by well-known Danish manufacturers, such as Feldballes Møbelfabrik, Fornem Møbelkunst, Fritz Hansen, and Magnus Olesen.

In true Danish modern fashion, Kristiansen favored well-joined teak and rosewood, evident equally in his chairs, desks, sideboards, and wall units. In 1956, he designed his most celebrated work, the No. 42 Chair for Schou Andersen. The organically curved back and pivoted armrests form a chair that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. The No. 42 was well-received by critics and enjoyed continued success as one of the most enduring Danish designs of the 20th century.

Kristiansen’s collaboration with Magnus Olesen brought about the sleek and sculptured No. 121 Lounge Chair. His modular FM Reolsystem Wall Unit (1957) for Feldballe Møbelfabrik met with success, not only in Scandinavia, but also throughout the rest of Europe and overseas in the United States.

Because they were so difficult to manufacture, many of Kristiansen’s designs eventually went out of production. In 2014, Kristiansen collaborated with Miyazaki Chair Company in Japan to reimagine some of his classics designs, which resulted in the Handy Chair, 4110 Chair, and Paper Knife seating collection. Today, his vintage designs are highly collectible, and he is recognized as one of the most talented Scandinavian designers of the 20th century.

As we specialise in bespoke, one-off pieces, at Modern Antics, not one of our item’s shares the same dimensions as another. This makes it impossible for us to standardise our shipping rates, but is also another reason why every of our items is so special.
Additionally, as a small business, the length of time it would take us to calculate the cost of shipping every item,  would mean we wouldn’t have any time to provide our customers with the items we work so hard to make available to you.
Large items, such as tables or sideboards, that cannot be sent using a standard shipping service, require a bespoke crate, which is essential to keep them safe and to be fully insured by our freight couriers. For more information on these crates, please get in touch.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us, with any questions or queries you might have. We love to chat to any potential customers or anyone looking for some advice, on interior design, furniture or anything in between.

Yours sincerely,
Modern Antics Ltd
