Danish design plays an important part in what has come to be known as the Mid-Century Modern style. Timeless furniture pieces, such as Hans J. Wegner’s Y-Chair and Finn Juhl’s Chieftain Chair, influenced designers all over the world and are still considered classics.

This book is the first to present an overview of the furniture created by Danish designers and architects, in the period between 1945-1975, tracing the movement from beginning to end. Expert in design history Lars Dybdahl provides thorough descriptions and analyses of particular furniture pieces, never failing to situate them within a historical and cultural context.

The book is richly illustrated, showcasing the aesthetic development from post-war Denmark to the swinging sixties and seventies.

Lars Dybdahl is Head of Library and Research at Design Museum Denmark. He is the author of various books on Danish design, such as the recently published 101 Danish Design Icons (2016) and Dansk Design Nu (2016).

Authentic Nordic design

We exist to bring real and authentic Nordic style into British homes. Our collection of Danish furniture and lighting by world-renowned designers sit alongside an array of lifestyle items and home accessories from younger, emerging brands.

Design icons

Some of our pieces are almost a century old. The Nordic design output of the last hundred years (and the personalities of the designers) have become the retroactive benchmark used to critique contemporary Scandinavian design.
