Furniture for study and terrace.

... for professionals, KIint's work is at treat: the bookcase with the dustproof fit of the sliding doors which run on ebony guides so that the faint ‘rolling' sound of the fittings used previously has now been eleminated; his desk with a built-in typewriter which is pulled out of the cabinet into normal table height in a single motion by means of an ingenious mechanism. On Klint’s latest pieces the profiles have been replaced by rounded corners...

His studies of measurements, which form the bases of his work, are up on a scientific level; every detail, every fitting has been carefully considered. Kaare Klint is the first modern Danish designer to have his furniture made in unstained mahogany which is allowed to be mellowed by the chemical influence of air and light.
