About Edvard & Tove Kindt-Larsen

Edvard Kindt-Larsen (1901–1982) was a Danish architect and furniture designer who worked closely together with his wife Tove Kindt-Larsen (1906–1994). From the 1930s to the 1960s, the couple were among Denmark’s predominant designers, active the areas of architecture, furniture design, silverware and textiles.

Much of Edvard Kindt-Larsen’s success is due to the collaboration with his wife Tove whom he married in 1937. Both Edvard and Tove studied under Kaare Klindt at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the late 1920s. Working as a team, they exhibited a high sense of quality and appreciation of current trends.

They specialized in furniture design, presenting their work at the annual exhibitions of the Cabinetmakers Guild, organised by Edvard from 1943 to 1966. Their pieces for factory production were rather simple in design but they also designed more elaborate individual pieces.

 

They were fascinated by the idea of contrasts, as can be seen in their furniture where they often combined different materials.

The couple also designed home textiles for Gabriel in Fredericia and silverware for A. Michelsen.

Edward Kindt-Larsen worked as an architect and was awarded the Eckersberg Medal in 1949.
