Frank Reenskaug (1919-2001) studied furniture design in Norway at the SHKS school in 1952. The same year he launched a folding chair that two years later was exhibited at the Triennale Pavilion in Milan. The Cross Chair from 1956 was the first of his designs to be mass produced by the Danish Bramin Furniture. In 1958 they launched Frank Reenskaug's rocking chair, No. 182, a pioneering concept of a high quality product, affordable and easy to assemble. It became by far his most sold design and was for many years a huge export success.
