The Metropolitan Chair was designed by the duo Ejner Larsen and
Aksel Bender Madsen. 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 designed approximately 300 works, and
thus put their clear mark on Danish design over the years. Of these
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. It was
consequently named the Metropolitan Chair.
Metropolitan Chair is produced in solid oak or walnut and is
available in two variants: One fully upholstered in saddle leather
(LM92), the other combining a leather-upholstered seat with an
exposed veneer back (LM92T).
