Modernity at PAD London 2017

Modernity is exhibiting for the seventh time in a row at the renowned art and design fair PAD, which is once again pitching its famous tent in chic Berkeley Square, Mayfair. The six-day fair offers an eclectic mix of modern art and design, making this the perfect event for any collector or connoisseur.

We are especially proud to present two exceptional works by Danish designer Ernst Kühn: a sideboard and dining table made of Brazilian rosewood and bearing exquisite brass details. Two unique pieces presented at the Brussels International Exposition of 1935. An elegant set of dining chairs designed by Helge Vestergaard Jensen will complete the display, together with a pair of Josef Frank table lamps.

Another highlight of our stand will be the sculptural Chieftain Chair by Danish designer Finn Juhl. The Chieftain is one of Juhl’s absolute masterpieces, representing the peak of his career as a furniture designer.

Part of our exhibition will also be dedicated to Danish master cabinetmaker Börge Mogensen, whose exceptional library table was exhibited at the Röhsska museum in Göteborg, Sweden, in 1955. After the exhibition, the table was given by Copenhagen cabinetmakers guild to Mr. Göran Axel Nilsson, who at that time was the director of the Röhsska museum. Two chairs by the same designer will accompany the table, and the ensemble will stand beside a Kaare Klint seating area.

The left side of our stand will honor mid-Century Nordic design with an exceptional two-seater sofa by Frits Henningsen in its original leather upholstery, a remarkable chair by Danish designer Brockmann-Petersen, as well as an Elizabeth armchair by Ib Kofod-Larsen.

Modernity has over the years come to specialize on rare and remarkable lamps. Finnish designers Alvar Aalto and Danish light master Poul Henningsen will be particularly honored on our stand this year.

We sincerely hope you will have a chance to come and visit us, it will be a great pleasure to welcome you and take the time to show you around. Until Sunday, October 8 - 11 AM to 8 PM (Sunday until 6 PM)
