Concept

FK – Scandinavian design by Fabricius and Kastholm – is classic design history. In the sixties the bucket seat was laying down markers for a new formal language: FK – the unique form, the clear contours, the perfect lines. Bucket and three-star base, volume and lightness – a graphic image of compelling conciseness. In 1969 the armchair was awarded the first federal style prize for »Gute Form« (Good Shape) and became an icon of minimalism in design. A wave of adulation that can still be felt today.
