Poul Hundevad was born in Vamdrup, Denmark in 1917. He trained as a carpenter and, for a time, owned his own cabinetmaking shop and furniture factory. In the early 1950’s he founded & based Hundevad & Company in Vamdrup, Denmark principally producing furniture by himself and by Danish designers like Carlo Jensen, Kaj Winding, Harald Plum and Mogens Plum. In 1960, he began production of his most famous work, the Guldhøj chair, a design that was a direct copy of a folding chair found in a burial mound in Vamdrup that dated back to the Scandinavian Bronze Age. Over the years he designed many dining chairs, tray carts, sideboards, cabinets, trolley carts, and bookcases. Poul Hundevad was a quintessential Danish furniture designer. He looked to the past, stayed true to traditional craftsmanship and techniques, yet created pieces that were thoroughly modern. -VHB Great Danish Designers 101.
