The chair is one of the strongest representatives of the development of Danish design and a reason why furniture design has made Denmark famous worldwide. Designmuseum Danmark wants to tell the story about this inheritance and development with the exhibition "The Danish Chair”.
 
The exhibition invites audience to walk into a surrounding experience of the chair’s development and history. Showing 110 central pieces of Designmuseum Denmark’s collection, each chair is put in a frame, thus creating a very special insight into Danish and international design history. The exhibition’s many Danish classics are set into perspective with international furniture types.

The Metropolitan chair was designed by Aksel Bender Madsen and Ejner Larsen in 1949. It is an example of Danish organic modernism and is one of the best pieces the duo created.
