The Scandinavian modernist movement paid special attention to timelessness within its aesthetic ideology. There was also a literal allusion to historicism and the classical tradition throughout the evolution of the movement.

The Klismos chair, an icon of classical Greek furniture depicted in historicist paintings of the ancient civilization, is a silhouette which has been revived throughout time to ground design practices in a homage to a classical past. This particular chair was produced in 1976 by an undetermined manufacturer, though many Scandinavian manufacturers were producing the Klismos silhouette throughout the 20th century.
