Illum Wikkelsø for A. Mikael Laursen & Søn, sofa, model 'ML-140', leather, mahogany, Denmark, 1950s.
This sophisticated sofa shows an unusual elegance and great eye for detail, combined with outstanding craftsmanship, which is characteristic for the work of Illum Wikkelsø. Tapered legs executed in dark stained mahogany support this three seater sofa. The loose black leather seating cushions provide a very comfortable seat, emphasized by the flowing lines of the armrests and excellent proportions of this majestic piece of furniture.
Illum Wikkelsø (1919-1999) was trained as a carpenter and later studied at the School of Arts & Crafts in Copenhagen. He first worked for the Danish furniture maker Jacob Kjær and the architect Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard until 1954 when he opened his studio on the outskirts of Aarhus. Here he designed especially simple and elegant seating with great functionality now considered classics of Danish furniture design. The style of his work varies from Kaare Klint's classicism Kaare Klints to the soft organic craft by Arne Jacobsen.
Please note that the leather of the frame compared to the cushions differ in condition.
