About the item

The Danish furniture designer Jørgen Kastholm  created furniture where Form, Function and Finish comes together beautifully. He produced a collection of furniture that is today an intrinsic part of Danish design DNA. Kastholm first trained as a blacksmith, and later went to study architecture at the School of Interior Design in Copenhagen under Finn Juhl. He graduated as an Architect in 1958

Fabricius was trained as a cabinetmaker by Niels Vodder before attending the School for Interior Design where he studied under Finn Juhl. It was there that he met the blacksmith Jørgen Kastholm .

They had a common approach to furniture design, never wanting to compromise on aesthetics. In 1961 Fabricius & Kastholm opened a design studio together in Denmark.

They exhibited at the Furniture Fair in Fredericia where the German furniture manufacturer Alfred Kill noticed their work and offered them a contract with Kill International. In 1968 the pair went separate ways.

Although the duo had many iconic designs on their name, perhaps one of their more well known is the FK Tulip Series.

Initially produced during the 60s until the 80s by Alfred Kill International in Germany, it was Walter Knoll who took over the license for the Tulip series once Alfred Kill went out of business. Until this day, Walter Knoll still produces the Tulip series according to the highest standards of quality in Germany.

These specific Tulips concern the FK 6727, with the more esthetic lower back. They are extremely well build and these specific chairs feature the original Cashmere 1430 warm gray leather with polished aluminium tripod swivel foot. All original markings present.

About its condition

Some small patina visible on leather and foot but overall in very good condition. Leather padding on the outside of the chair, weak point of these chairs often strongly scratched, is still in very nice condition.
