About the designer:

Frits Henningsen (1889–1965) was a Danish furniture designer and master cabinetmaker (a term he preferred himself), who led a team of cabinetmakers in central Copenhagen. As an active member of the Cabinetmakers Guild from 1927, Henningsen became a major driver of the furniture exhibitions of the period, gaining recognition for the high quality of his craftsmanship and his vibrant personality. Many of his works were crafted in exotic woods such as Brazilian rosewood and Cuban mahogany. All his furniture was exclusively made by hand using classical, labour-intensive methods as practised and refined by carpenters and cabinetmakers over centuries. ⠀
