These obsessively ordered rows are comprised of Arne Jacobsen model 3107 chairs, first produced in 1955. Though some find modern Danish design to be cold, small light-weight chairs like these are important for creating a hygge dining experience because everyone can scoot really close to one another.
Jacobsen chairs (and their many imitators) are ubiquitous in Denmark, so I sat in a few while I was there and can report that they are pretty comfy. The back has just a little bit of spring, which is nice, and they are very scootable because they’re so light. They are not made for American-size asses, though, and I feel like the legs could splay a bit if you sat someone really fat in the chair, which might not be confidence inspiring. The cutouts in the lower back provide for alternate seating positions.
