We call the Jazz chair ”the humble king of dining chairs”. It is an extremely durable construction elegantly made by only a few pieces of solid oak. This chair will last for more than a lifetime’s everyday use. So, yes. Pass it on with pride. It is typically ”Buch” with its curved forms and twisted angles. Have a seat and you’ll notice how very comfortable this chair is.
The Jazz chair was designed in the 1960s by Erik Buck.
Erik Buck was born in Copenhagen in 1923.
His designs carried the form, of what is called "The Modern Scandinavian Style". Like many of the well known contemporary Danish designers, Buck’s trademarks was “organic, functional and aesthetic” furniture made by master craftsmen in Danish oak and birch but also even more exotic materials like Teak and Palisander.
His breakthrough was "Model 49" which originally came out in 1949. An elegant dining chair that now is relaunched as SJ49 or "Jazz" along with the "Captains Chair" which was launched in 1955.
Buck died in 1981. His designs have long been vintage bestsellers and are now available in genuine replicas.
