The story behind the Fabricius & Kastholm FK 6726 Chair
Made most famous by Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada', the FK 6726 Chair is a triumph of form and style. Created by the celebrated design team of Fabricius & Kastholm, its bucket seat design and smooth clear contours are as stylish today as they were when they rolled off the conveyor belt almost 50 years ago. Nicknamed 'The Tulip' as the sculpted armrests and swooping backrest evoked the shape of petals, it is an excellent centrepiece for any stylish office or sleek living room area.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
FABRICIUS AND KASTHOLM
Fabricius 1931-1984 (Denmark) - Kastholm 1931-2007 (Denmark)
Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm met in 1961, while studying under Finn Juhl at the Copenhagen School of Interior Design, and would go on to forge one of the most fruitful and productive interior design partnerships of the 20th Century. Fabricius' skills as a cabinet maker, teamed with Kastholm's blacksmith knowledge led them to produce sumptuous designs from their Gentofte studio, expertly combining materials to create sleek, stylish pieces. Inspired by both functionalism and modernism, along with a healthy dash of 1960s panache, they devoted themselves to optimising shape, material and ergonomics. Their FK series is remembered as their most seminal set of designs, so much so that the FK 6726 "Tulip' Chair won them the inaugural "Gute Form' prize in 1969, recognising their innovation and craft.
"I had been to the United States and seen furniture by Eames and Mies van der Rohe and it inspired us. The simplest lasts longest."
