Stunning vintage poster by Antoni, (1929-1973). This stunning poster is produced on white colored matt cartridge poster paper, and the background to the print is solid yellow, where as the rest of the poster has some subtle shading to the colored areas. The poster depicts an elephant with a Danish chair on his back, the chair is, of course, a Safari Chair by Kaare Klimt.
Ib Antoni is, of course, famous for his travel posters, including work for, Young & Rubicam, Esso, Carlsberg, Volvo, UNICEF, Philips, Fortune, Neiman-Marcus, The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and also many ceramic designs. If you're not familiar with his work, do take a look on google images.
As Scandinavian design becomes even more appreciated, these pieces are becoming even more talked about and rare. This poster was created for the Danish Furniture manufacturers association, there were several in the series all illustrated by Antoni, each showing a different chair designed in Denmark.
The poster is in great condition, there is a little wear to the edge of the poster, especially the left-hand corner. (See photos), and a 1.5cm tear to the right-hand side, however, the overall condition is very good for a poster of this age..
