Paul Salomonsen (active 1960s)
Y Chair (circa 1965)
99 x 61cm
The poster features Hans J Wegner’s famous ‘Y chair’, also known as the ‘Wishbone chair’. Carl Hansen & Søn commissioned the poster from Salomonsen, a 1960s photographer. The stylish and typically Danish woman examining the chair marks it as a piece of typically Danish design. The chair was known as “The Chair” when it was used in the TV-transmitted debate between John F Kennedy and Richard Nixon in 1959. The Chair subsequently became an icon of Danish mid-century furniture design.
