TUE POULSEN, DOMUS DANICA, 1970: RED GLASSFIBER LOVE SEAT LOUNGE CHAIR

Professional seller: Deerstedt

12.000 EUR / 14.520 USD

Description

Seven different danish furniture companies went into a collaboration - Domus Danica - in a very short period at the start of 1970. Tue Poulsen who was a well respected Danish ceramist was given the assignment to come up with a line of modern furniture which should be produced in fiberglass. Tue Poulsen made a series of fiberglass furniture for the Danish fair at Bella Center in Copenhagen and the series consisted of a lounge chair, a double lounge chair, a chaiselongue, a sofa and a table. They were the eye-catchers of the fair and several of Tue Poulsen colleagues mocked him with the space design he had created because at that time fiberglass was not a frowned material. This double lounge chair - loveseat - is one out of 80 pieces that were ever produced. The amazing voluptures shapes were created in Tue Poulsen's ceramic workshop. He was in charge of the whole process of sculpting the chair and with the red glossy finish, the chair is indeed inviting you to have a seat and enjoy the 1970s feel of it. The sought-after fabric - which is the original from the date of production - is designed by Swedish Marjatta Metsovaara and is called "Perhonen". There are some minor reparations of the fabric and a zipper has been added for easier access to the styrofoam filling. There is not much story of the chair on the internet or in design books from the 70s, and after doing some research we managed to get in contact with Tue Poulsen who today is concentrating fully on ceramic art and pottery in his workshop in the northern part of Zealand, Denmark. Luckily Tue Poulsen kept all the documentation of the chair such as new papers articles, brochures, and pictures from the fair and he invited us to have a look in his scrapbook and took his time telling about the design process. Tue Poulsen was happy to be reunited with his chair and he signed the chair. It was a beautiful day with a walk down memory lane and Tue Poulsen wishes the chair all the best and lots of luck finding a new home. All the pictures from the scrapbook and documentation will follow the new owner - this is a truly and very unique design piece which tells a beautiful story about Danish design. The chair is in a great condition especially regarding its age - it is patinated beautifully with some marks and chips to the sides of the chair. I The original beanbag will, of course, follow the chair but in order to reduce shipping costs, the styrofoam filling is not included. As mentioned earlier the fabric has some minor repairs and the fabric is a bit faded on the front. The zipper has been added recently to assure easy access for the styrofoam filling.
