1950s Aksel Bender Madsen Set of 4 Oak Dining for Fritz Hansen
Sculptural and elegant, these dining chairs are executed with a rounded back, which is comforting to the human form.

The chairs are have soft edged seats, along with a back rest that floats within the oak frame.
This highlights the beautiful simplicity of Danish Modernist design.
On the base, the manufacturer's (Fritz Hansen) mark can be seen.
About the designer:
Committed to building the Danish design identity, Bender Madsen's style is representative of the Scandinavian design: clear, sober and timeless lines.
After an apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker, he studied furniture design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 1940.
During his studies, he met his friend and future collaborator: Ejner Larsen. Together, they presented many projects during several Cabinetmakers Guild's exhibition in Copenhagen.
Madsen also worked with two talented Scandinavian designers: Kaare Klint and Arne Jacobsen.
Bender Madsen has left an indelible mark on the history of Scandinavian design.
