Arne Vodder for Bovirke Armchair in Oak and Beige Upholstery


Arne Vodder for Bovirke, lounge chair, model 'BO 90', Denmark, 1952

This easy chair is defined by its thick, wide armrests that run all the way behind the back, beautifully surrounding the backrest in an organic manner. The constructive carved frame with its tapered legs guarantees stability and contributes to the chair's sculptural appearance. The tilted backrest with buttons and large seat provide great comfort. The seating is upholstered in a dark-toned beige fabric. This model is currently rare and hard-to-find.

Arne Vodder (1926-2009) should be named among the most influential Scandinavian Midcentury designers, although he is not as well-known as for instance Hans Wegner or Arne Jacobson. Once a student of famous furniture designer Finn Juhl, who later became his friend and business partner. Vodder started out as an architect who designed low-cost housing, later on, he began designing furniture. Although his designs are anything but low-quality, his aim for functional design that could be used by all remained important. He designed amongst others for Fritz Hansen & Sibast.
