The Metropolitan Chair was designed by the duo Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen in 1949. With its organic form and high quality of craftsmanship the Metropolitan chair falls within the golden era of furniture history, known as Danish Modern.

Larsen and Bender Madsen met while studying under leading Danish designer Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Together they designed approximately 300 works, of which the Metropolitan Chair is considered their most significant.

The chair got its breakthrough at the exhibition The Arts of Denmark at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York in 1960, where the most prominent of Danish design was showcased. The chair was consequently named the Metropolitan Chair.
