Aksel Kjersgaard was a furniture designer and manufacturer. He created and produced furniture at the height of the Danish mid-century modern movement. In 1952 Kjersgaard returned to Denmark, after working and traveling through Europe and Morocco, to establish his own production company, Aksel Kjersgaard A/S, and in 1955 he began producing furniture. Kjersgaard collaborated with iconic Danish designer Kai Kristiansen in the 1950s and ‘60s, and Ebbe Gehl & Søren Nissen from 1970. Although there are few production dates or model names available, Kjersgaard’s works are stamped and/or numbered, making them easy to identify and desirable on the vintage market. In fact, many pieces are stamped “Odder”, which is an indication of provenance.
