Modernity exhibits at the PAD-fair in Pairs

At this year's fair we will present a variety of furniture pieces by the celebrated Scandinavian designers Hans Wegner, Poul Henningsen, Ib Kofoed Larsen, Paavo Tynell, Axel Einar Hjorth and Josef Frank etc.

We are especially proud to present a unique grandfather clock designed by Jens Jacob Bregnö, Denmark. 1927. This is a spectacular example of Danish Art Deco, inspired by the discovery of Tutankhamon's tomb.

This year is the centennial jubilee of the Austrian-Swedish architect and designer Josef Frank. We highlight this with exhibiting a unique and very early “Flora” cabinet by him, specially made for a Swedish professor.

We would also like to highlight that we have very special pieces by the Danish master Hans Wegner, such as a large Sabre leg dining table and a set of eight dining chairs from the famous “the Chair” series.

Modernity has over the years come to specialize on the lighting master Poul Henningsen’s various table and ceiling lamps. The pieces that we carry are always from the very first years of production, and this year we have several rare lamps from his first edition 1926.
Alongside furniture, we will also show a selection of Märta Måås-Fjetterström rugs, amongst which the round red “Flowerbed”, only made in an edition of four.

The ceramics selected for this year's presentation will include works by the internationally acclaimed Danish contemporary ceramic artist Sandra Davolio, and this year we will for the first time in Paris exhibit corpus pieces by the renowned Danish silversmith Carsten From Andersen.
