DESCRIPTION
Designed in 1968, the bird chair or tulip is still simply stunning today nearly 50 years on!
This is probably one of the best versions, high backed with a three legged caster base and brown mid leather.
This perfect desk chair or more than capable of being used as a stand alone impact chair. Form and function at its best from probably the best Danish duo!

The chair is in good original condition with wear to the leather which is mainly on the arms also wear to the base. The casters have been replaced with original specification versions saving major damage to floors.

Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm met in 1961, while studying under Finn Juhl at the Copenhagen School of Interior Design, and would go on to forge one of the most fruitful and productive interior design partnerships of the 20th Century. Fabricius’ skills as a cabinet maker, teamed with Kastholm’s blacksmith knowledge led them to produce sumptuous designs from their Gentofte studio, expertly combining materials to create sleek, stylish pieces. Inspired by both functionalism and modernism, along with a healthy dash of 1960s panache, they devoted themselves to optimising shape, material and ergonomics. Their FK series is remembered as their most seminal set of designs, so much so that the FK 6726 ‘Tulip’ Chair won them the inaugural ‘Gute Form’ prize in 1969, recognising their innovation and craft.
