Jørgen Kastholm and Preben Fabricius, who had been classmates at the School of Interior Design in the 1950s, formed a philosophical partnership in 1960 the founding principles of which were Perfection, Aesthetics and Minimization. In 1961, they opened an architecture office together, and for eight years designed the pieces which came to define their legacy.
This wonderfully comfortable Kastholm and Fabricius design is one of the few that were produced in their home country, Denmark, by Bo-Ex. The sharp steel base contrasts handsomely with the down-filled cushions. The leather is original, and has been professionally restored and fully lined to stabilize the aging process.
