Kaare Klint and Edvard Kindt-Larsen, Pair of ‘Mix’ lounge chairs, mahogany, Niger leather, brass, Denmark, 1930s

‘Mix’ easy chairs in original Niger upholstery and mahogany designed by Kaare Klint and Edvard Kindt-Larsen. The chairs are a combination of convex and concave curves that create a dynamic, refined look. The deep mahogany wood compliments the color of the patinated leather beautifully. The ‘Mix’ chair was designed by Kaare Klint and Edvard Kindt-Larsen around 1930. On the sketch sheet, Klint had written “Mix (a mixture of Kindt and Klint”. By doing so, Klint hinted that Edvard Kindt-Larsen had made the working drawing as part his graduation as a pupil for Klint at N.C. Jensen Kjær in 1927. Kindt-Larsen’s attribution to the design might be the reason why the chair is called “Mix”.

Kaare Klint (1888-1954), born in 1988 in Frederiksburg, Denmark, was a Danish architect and furniture designer. From a young age, Klint was immersed in architecture as his father was a well-known architect. After studying at the P.S. Krøyer’s Art School from 1907, Klint made his debut as a designer. In 1924, Klint helped establishing the Department of Furniture Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. As associate professor, and later professor, he inspired some of the greatest and most well-known Danish designers, including Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen. Klint worked and thought along a few strong principles being the importance of former styles. Therefore, Kaare Klint can be seen as the father of Danish midcentury design.

Edvardt Kindt-Larsen (1901-1982) was a Danish designer. Trained as an architect, he had studied under the guidance of Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. A large part of his success is due to the collaboration with his wife, Tove. During their marriage and partnership as architects and furniture designers, they were at the forefront of Danish and Scandinavian design. Nowadays they are known for refined, modest design executed with the highest quality materials.
