Original Jørgen Høvelskov "Harp" Chair for Christensen & Larsen


Iconic "Harp" chair designed by designer Jørgen Høvelskov in 1968 and produced by cabinet maker Christensen & Larsen in Denmark. Inspired by the arching curves of the bow and stern of a Viking boat, the chair was initially named the Viking Chair when exhibited for the first time in 1963. Afterward, because the woven rope resembled the strings of a harp, it was later introduced by a journalist as the Harp Chair and to be known as one of Høvelskov's finest examples of his visually imposing design ideas. The beauty of the chair is in its construction with its curvature legs that are joined in the center, showcasing Hovelskov’s architectural expertise. The minimalistic approach to its fabrication gives it an element of functional beauty pertinent to the Danish Modern style. The beautifully woven rope seat adapts to the sitter’s shape, making for comfort, and the swooping curve of the central piece from the low front to a high arching backrest cradles the body, mimicking the carved front of a Viking war-ship. The frame is crafted in solid ash wood that has been meticulously refinished by our skilled artisans and its flag halyard re-roped for maximum functionality and durability. All while maintaining the core of Høvelskov's original design philosophy to make it the ideal focal point for any modern interior.
