In cooperation with Schou Andersen they gave a birth to a wide range of iconic furniture, among others also to the geometric #42 Dining Chair (1960). Their design characterize harmonious equilibrium of form and function, clean lines expression and exotic wood usage.
Besides, Kristiansen was responsible for organizing regional Furniture Fair from 1956 to 1965 on which plenty of new talents emerged.
