Concept

The Chair of Future from 1929 has been named after The House of Future, which was exhibited in Forum in Copenhagen in 1929 as a winner project by Arne Jacobsen and his associate Flemming Lassen. This project became the beginning of Arne Jacobsen´s career as an architect. The Chair of Future from 1929 has been rather difficult to recreate since no drawings of this chair have ever been found. The chair has been photographed in connexion with The House of Future and photos of the chair was brought in furniture magazines of that time. However we found a drawing of the Canechair AJ 235, and the measurements also appeared to fit for The Chair of Future from 1929. This chair is somewhat bigger than the Paris-Chair, but the seat has got the same size by the fact, that the sitting hight is taller. The chair has been hand crafted following the original chair from 1929. The Chair of Future from 1929 is made of natural rattan-fibres on a solid frame of rattan cane.
