About the designers: 

The two Danish designers Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007) met each other at the School of Interior Design where they both studied in the 1950s.

But, it wasn’t until they both had gained some experience abroad that they met again in 1960 and agreed upon the design philosophy of; Perfection, Aesthetics and Minimization. 

One year later, in 1961 they formed a partnership and founded an architect office. While Fabricius was an educated cabinetmaker, it was with Kastholm’s unique experience as a blacksmith that the obvious and usual choice of material would be steel.  

Although the two designers have individually created some interesting pieces, it is in pair that they have achieved their greatest success. During the eight years of partnership they managed to create a wide selection of very high quality designs. The results were often minimalistic and functional designs in steel, glass and leather. 


We will have restoration work done on this piece as it will need touching up in certain areas.  The photos with the listing are of the item without any restoration.
