Arne Vodder for Bovirke Chaise Longue in Patinated Leather


Arne Vodder for Bovirke, chaise longue, leather, oak, Denmark, 1950s.

Chaise longue designed by Arne Vodder for Bovirke in the 1950s. This chaise longue has an open frame in oak wood and a seating created of braided leather straps. The flowing shape of the frame, together with the pure combination of leather and wood creates a natural character. The frame rests on tapered legs and due to the openness, a design that is all about shape and angles is created. The highly patinated leather truly stands out and adds unique value to the chaise longue.

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.
