From March-July 2013, Jacksons is pleased to announce The Cabinet Maker, an exhibition that takes a unique approach to the history of the cabinetmaking tradition in both Denmark and Sweden, and traces the formidable relationships that bonded cabinetmaker and architect during the height of the twentieth century.
Under Klint's leadership at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in partnership with the Danish Cabinet Makers' Guild, annual exhibitions were initiated in 1927 that fostered new relationships between architects and cabinetmakers, creating a number of lasting partnerships--most notably Kaare Klint and Rud. Rasmussen, Ole Wanscher and A.J. Iversen, Hans J. Wegner and Johannes Hansen, and Finn Juhl and Niels Vodder. The exhibition focuses on these very cabinet makers who contributed an unparalleled knowledge of craft and quality to the work, yet are oftentimes overshadowed by their collaborators.
