The Clam Chair was designed in 1944 in Copenhagen by Danish upholsterer Arnold Madsen. In 1945 Arnold founded the furniture company Madsen & Schubell together with cabinetmaker Henry Schubell in order to produce this unique chair that became known in Danish as the: 'Muslingstol' (Clam Chair), due to its unique shape reminiscent of an open clam shell.
This new edition has been crafted using a blend of traditional joinery techniques and modern technology, resulting in an authentic product of the highest quality. Dagmar is proud to re-launch this icon of the Danish Modern movement in collaboration with the estate of Arnold Madsen.
