Add to wish list

Kristian Solmer Vedel (1923 - 2003) graduated from the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Industrial Design and continued to lecture at the same institution. After having been professor at University of Nairobi 1968-72 he returned to Denmark and became part of the Scandinavian Design movement. Influenced by Kaare Klint and the German Bauhaus school, his classically modern designs are characterized by a creative use of materials, especially plastics and wood, and with a strong sense for ergonomic and functional requirements. A typical example is his children's furniture, which could be adapted to a growing child and turned over to be used as a toy.In all respects, the furniture was designed for children according to their particular needs, rather than just being a miniature version of adult furniture.

Danish language edition. Richly illustrated with photos and drawings.
