Illum Wikkelsø '272' Set of Easy Chairs and Ottoman with Canvas Seats
Illum Wikkelsø C.F. Christiansen, pair of easy chairs and ottoman model 272, teak, canvas and leather, Denmark, 1960s.
Very rare easy chairs and ottoman model 272 in teak and canvas designed by Illum Wikkelsø. The solid teak legs are tapered and lean slightly outwards, giving this set its characteristic look. The tip of the legs come through the canvas seats, which is spanned between the legs. The canvas is finished with cognac leather on the edges, creating a nice contrast with the canvas. Well deigned set with use of natural materials.
