I've been obsessing over the relaunched Metropolitan Chair from the Danish design label Carl Hansen & Son. Initially, the chair was made by duo Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen back in 1949. And now, over half a century later, Carl Hansen & Son brought this design back to life. The Metropolitan Chair ows its name to an exhibition in the sixties at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York, where the most prominent of Danish design was showed. The simplicity of this work is its power, I believe. And after watching how the chair is made, it almost makes me wanna go out there and experiment in the woodshop myself. But close to this form of craftsmanship, it will never get. The Metropolitan Chair is available in oak and walnut with saddle leather in natural, cognac or black. I would pick black, in the matching gold and concrete grey setting below. These sober colours would actually brighten up my life. Black is back and gold will never get old.
