Jeg stillede mig selv den opgave, at lave en stol med smukke ben, og da de smukkeste ben JEG i hvertflad kender, er dameben, lå det naturligt at arbejde med dette motiv. Designprocessen har været en ønskeopgave, med meget grundige undersøgelser og interessante opmålinger. Jeg skal lige undskylde, at i ligestillingens navn har jeg naturligvis også forsøgt at designe en stol med mandeben, men det har vist sig at være meget sværere, da disse foruden ofte at være behårede langtfra besidder demebenenes ynde og tiltrækning for den kreative fantasi. Iøvrigt er min indstilling til begreber som trender og mode i møbler og indretning sådan, at jeg synes man ligeså godt kan forholde sig lidt humoristisk til det, hvad jeg så har forsøgt at gøre.

I set myself the task of designing a chair with beautiful legs. And since - at least as far as I am aware - the most beautiful leg is the feminine one, it seemed natural to work with that as the motif.

It has been a dream assignment, involving very detailed investigation and fascinating measuring activity. I should add that, in the interest of sexual equality, I naturally also tried to design chair with masculine legs. This, however, proved to be far more difficult. Apart from frequently being hairy the male leg is not nearly so delightful as the female and does not offer the same inspiration to the creative imagination.

My feeling about concepts such as "trend" and "fashion" in furniture and interior design is that they should be approached with a touch of humor - and that is what I have tried to do.
