Kaare Klint (1888-1954) was a Danish architect and furniture designer.  

He began as a student at the office of his father, P.V. Jensen Klint and the architect Carl Petersen. In order to produce furniture in the right dimensions, Klint was interested in the human body’s joints and movements. So all of his designs were made with the outmost focus on comfort. In 1923, Klint joined the Academy of Fine Arts at the School of Furniture Art and in 1924 he became an associate professor. In 1944 he became professor of architecture.
