Erik Magnussen – Z chair

Very unique and rare museum quality piece of Erik Magnussen. Early model Z-chair. This item was produced in 1960s for Torben Orskov. This model was never really in production. Chromed bent tubular frame, folding chair with off white canvas upholstery. Jonna Magnussen, the widow of Erik Magnussen, confirmed the design of this piece.

“The chair in your picture was designed by Erik Magnussen. To the best of my knowledge it was never really in production. Those chairs – including Z-down – happen to be the first furniture Erik designed – encouraged by Torben Orskov who had a design shop in central Copenhagen – Form & Farve. Erik was – at this time – still working for Bing&Grøndahl Porcelain exploring new ways of designing porcelain service.” – Jonna Magnussen

Zeer uniek, museum kwaliteit item van Erik Magnussen. Vroeg model Z-stoel. Dit item is geproduceerd voor Torben Orskov in de jaren ’60. Het model is nooit echt in productie genomen. Chrome buisframe, opvouwbare stoel met beige canvas bekleding. Jonna Magnussen, de weduwe van Erik Magnussen, bevestigt het design. 

“Deze stoel in de foto is van Erik Magnussen. Naar mijn weten is deze nooit echt in productie genomen. Deze stoelen, inclusief de latere Z-down chair, zijn de allereerste meubelontwerpen van Erik, aangemoedigd door Torben Orskov, die in die tijd een design winkel in Copenhagen had – Form & Farve. Erik was op dat moment nog steeds werkzaam voor Bing & Grondahl porselein. Hij onderzocht daar nieuwe manieren om porselein vorm te geven.” – Jonna Magnussen
