Background Antoni’s tidy and often witty style, frequently deployed in official promotions such as this one, helped to define the international image of Denmark in the 1960s. He also worked for Life magazine and Unicef, and for brands such as Volvo and Shell. The image shows a craftsman holding up a chair of characteristic Danish mid-century design, and sitting on a tree in the form of a chair. The saw and setsquare are classic Antoni touches. An English-language version of this poster carried the slogan: 'Famous for fine furniture'.
