006 Denmark Furniture poster

By IB Antoni


  • Description

    b Antoni´s motive made for the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in connection with 'Danska Veckorna' in Stockholm, Sweden in 1964. The Ministry held a competition for Poster Designers to send in their suggestions. Ib Antoni won with his series of four motives, where this is one of them. The series was used in the following years as main motives at the many exhibitions held around the world, in cooperation between The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danish Industry and Danish Agriculture. This motive was used to represent Danish furniture design. Also at the World Expo in New York in 1964/65. With the proud Danish furniture designer Hans Wegner sitting with his world famous chair. Five years earlier, the chair was immortalized in the TV duel between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, after which the chair was nicknamed 'The Chair'.

    It has been a long process prior to the production of these special prints. The Antoni Family and Gallerist Mikael Hauberg decided to keep a very high quality during the process. They did high sophisticated photographing of the original posters and sketches. Colour adjusted during the process to make sure the original look.

    All reprints are made on special paper with non-fading colors and with an extra color in gold in the same places where the originals were gold coated. All printing is done in a sustainable way by a Danish printing company. There is a high focus on quality, an accurate reproduction of the originals and a general respect for Ib Antonis perfectionism in his drawings.

    The first reprints were ready for sale in the middle of 2013.
