In the mid-20th century design became a cultural phenomenon that placed Denmark on the world map, in particular recognition for creating the 'perfect chair'. A much-talked about object of design, chairs tell a story about history and society whilst touching upon natural and human forms.
In a very unique way this book shows, not just in words but also with drawings and photos how Danish chairs are built on historical furniture types, which are then refined into the infinite. The message and the explanation for the international success of Danish furniture is this; Danish furniture design is based on foreign culture and the best creations of former times.
