Famous Muslingestol lounge chair designed with arms and legs of stained beech and recently new upholstered, in perfect condition. Manufactured by Nordisk Staal & Møbel Central. Fringe architect Arctander is mostly known for his directorship at the Danish Building institute and his UN advisory role for affordable housing. His contribution of the now iconic Muslingestol (clam chair) to NY FORM in Copenhagen in 1944 got the piece immediately into production. With Arctander leaving the furniture branch, Nordic suppliers like IKEA and Vik & Blindheim adapted his drafts and only much later was confirmed that it was his design, making it somewhat more iconic inside the design market, where it holds a secured place today, beneath the swedish classics Ekström, Holmquist or Malmsten.
