Illum Wikkelsø, blue fabric and oak lounge chair, Denmark, 1960s.

This lounge chair was designed by Illum Wikkelsø and manufactured by Mikael Laursen in Denmark in the 1960s. This lounge set is comfortable and shows playful details. The chair bends slightly backwards in order to make the perfect angle to relax. The sharp round finishes of the upholstery make this a truly unique chair. This chair holds the mid between iconic Danish Mid-Century design and at the same time being unique and original. The crossed legs are typical for Wikkelsø designs.

Illum Wikkelsø (1919-1999) was trained as a carpenter and later studied at the School of Arts and 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 to the soft organic craft by Arne Jacobsen.
