Gunnar Aagaard Andersen's stools, produced by PP Møbler DANSK MØBELKUNST A limited-edition designer long before the description was commonly used, Gunnar Aagaard Andersen never felt the need to produce pieces that were suitable for serial production. Originally a painter and a sculptor, Aagaard Andersen was keen on experimenting with new materials and technologies. The pair of stools above were one of his latest works, produced just two years before his death in 1982. For these stools, created as a variation on the rustic milking stool, he made a seat out of veneer stripes of different lengths held in place in relation to one another and to two laminate-glued, molded pair of legs held in place with bolts.
