Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Menfollows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.
For all the fans of one of the most fantastic dramas on the television I have ever watched, "Mad men" is not only a passionating story (Don Draper's romance life & love affairs...), but something like a reading of the early 1960s.
Thus each detail is significant : let's pay attention to the perfection of the award-winning decor, based upon mi-century style. Stephen Coles wrote last month an interesting study on Don Draper's office (http://midcenturymodernist.com/2010/culture/film-tv/mad-men-furniture-don-drapers-office/)...
In this office, American pieces inspired by Danish design are combined with pure Danish furniture like chairs by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard, two designers we like very much :
Boxy Sofa, by Simplaform; unnamed sofa, by Jydsk Mobelvaerk; Goetz Sofa, by Herman Miller
Time-Life Executive Chair (ES 105), by Eames; FD-146 Chair, Peter Hvidt & Olga Molgaard ; Boxy Set, by Simplaform
