My office furniture is Danish/American mid-century modern. You know the stuff - very plain, functional, lots of flat planes, and little ornamentation. It was the hip stuff from the '50s and '60s, even into the '70s. It is somewhat severe in style, but made warm by the natural wood and the colors of the fabrics. Ikea is the modern heir to that aesthetic. I guess this all descends from Bauhaus. But Danish and Scandinavian pipes from the late '60s onward, seem, to me, anyway, to differ from this sense of style. I mean Preben Holm and his design descendants, even to some of the big names of today, like Ivarrson or Chonowitsch. (I realize not every Danish makers' pipes are like that, but in general, that style.) They are more organic and free flowing. The use of plateau and rounded shapes seems different in many ways from the style of the furniture of the same place and time. Has anyone else noticed this? Are the styles alike in some way I have overlooked? Is there some reasons pipe makers have a different vision than furniture designers?
