An Industrious Designer
- First comprehensive presentation of the Danish designer
- Discover how Kai Kristiansen fruitfully continued the famous Danish Design
At 92 years old, Danish furniture designer Kai Kristiansen is still at it, practicing the same methods as he did in the 1950s when he set up his design studio. In collaboration with numerous Danish furniture manufacturers, Kristiansen has conceived significant and well-crafted products which remain popular today. Classics of Danish modern design, the furniture of Kai Kristiansen is durable, functional and adaptable – and still in demand globally. Written in conjunction with the designer, Kai Kristiansen: An Industrious Designer is the first overview of his more than 70-year career and prolific output. The copiously illustrated biography reveals how his basic tenets of economy, ecology and common sense influenced the manufacturing processes of the furniture industry outside the spotlight of Copenhagen. Looking back at his life and career, he now tells his own story, sharing his approach, experiences and visions.
