Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert for P. Jeppesens Møbelfabrik, set of twelve ‘Louisiana’ dining chairs, oak, leather, Denmark, 1958.
The ‘Louisiana’ chair was initially created for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk (Denmark) which Danish architects Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert have designed. Inside the modern building complex the chairs were supposed to serve as functional chairs for events. Therefore Bo and Wohlert had a comfortable chair in mind that is easily stackable. The round seat with brown leather and a curved backrest provide comfort.
