Designed By
Frits Henningsen was renowned as an uncompromising designer who viewed quality craftsmanship as essential, and unlike most cabinetmakers, always designed his own furniture pieces. In 1911, at age 22, Henningsen (1889-1965) completed his cabinetmaker apprenticeship with one of the most recognized Scandinavian cabinetmakers of his day - I.P. Mørck. As a member of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild, Henningsen became a major driver of the furniture exhibitions of the period, gaining recognition for his perfectionist style and vibrant personality. He gave new expression to traditional designs and drew inspiration from the French Empire, rococo, and British 17th-century furniture.
