Visit Carl Hansen & Søn as they introduce the Kaare Klint collection as part of their exclusive flagship store range. See weavers demonstrate part of the process of creating the iconic Faaborg Chair.

Kaare Klint inspired a new generation of designers, including Arne Jacobsen, Mogens Koch and Poul Kjærholm. Many of his creations were based on scientific studies of historical designs and human proportions.

Created for Faaborg Museum in Denmark in 1914, the Faaborg Chair is still an iconic example of Kaare Klint’s unique design. With its elegantly curved legs, woven back and sides and clean silhouette, it references classic chairs while marking the transition to a more modern aesthetic. It takes a skilled weaver about 20 hours to complete the complex pattern, making it a true representation of the passionate craftsmanship at Carl Hansen & Søn’s core. A process that has been in place since the very beginning – and one that’s still going strong.
