Royal Danish Playhouse chairs

Anyone enjoying a walk around the harbour from Nyhavn past the Royal Danish Playhouse will have spotted the large gathering of cute little red chairs outside the Playhouse’s cafe.  They caught my eye and I thought they made a lovely foreground for a shot of the Opera House. Then by chance an Instagrammer I follow also photographed them and I discovered like many normal things around us here they are a Danish design classic.
These humble little cafe chairs are in fact Tivoli chairs designed in 1955 by Verner Panton but that is the Danish legacy of beautiful design for everyone to enjoy.
