First presented in 1964 when it won the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Prize for its outstanding craftsmanship and expression, Kastholm & Fabricius shine a spotlight on design elements that other craftsmen seek to hide. A beautiful wooden frame with precisely jointed limbs is put centre stage, highlighting the magnificent artisanship and skill used to bring the chair to life.
Honouring the designer’s commitment to simplicity and functionality, the chair has a minimalist aesthetic, finished with luxurious upholstery and an adjustable, folding backrest; creating an unforgettable seating experience. Also available with a taller backrest and accompanying neck cushion is the FK10 Plico Lounge Chair.
Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) both attended the Danish school of Interior Design, where they studied architecture under Finn Juhl and subsequently with Arne Jacobsen.
Creating a handful of designs as a partnership, the duo were driven by a mutual mission to make a form a pure derivative of function. Their work is defined by mixing materials and shapes, forming streamlined, sleek pieces; with many commissioned pieces intended for international airports, penthouse apartments, high-profile lifestyle magazines and even early James Bond films.
