Form and Function: a Danish Design Icon.
Steel tube furniture designed by Poul Henningsen was first introduced in 1932 at “Koebestaevnet” in Frederica, Denmark, the leading national Industrial Fair of this era. Poul Henningsen’s design concept based around free-flowing spirals is a constantly recurring theme within his work, in both the furniture, the lamps, the houses and the exhibition architecture.The Snake Chair’s flowing lines within it’s steel tube design are inspired by the strong yet flexible body of a snake.
It is multi-use and fits any room at home, in the apartment, in the office with a function or simply as a piece of art to be admired for generations to come. The Snake chair is available in chromed steel tubes and can be ordered with two types of leather upholstery finishes: with full upholstery around the steel tubes or with the steel tube visible highlighting the form and shapes of the unique design.
