Kaare Klint 1888–1954

Recognized as the father of Danish furniture design, Kaare Klint was born in Copenhagen in 1888 to the family of architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint. While in his younger years he studied painting, he eventually apprenticed as a furniture maker, attended technical school, Jens Møller-Jensens furniture school, and the Artists' Studio Schools in Copenhagen. In 1914, at just 26 years old, Klint designed Denmark’s first modern design classic, the Faaborg Chair, for the Faaborg Museum in collaboration with his mentor and fellow architect Carl ‘Calle’ Petersen. Following the wide acclaim for his early designs, he received several other commissions for museums including the Thorvaldsens Museum and the Danish Museum of Decorative Art in Copenhagen.
