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.

Jørgen Bo (1919-1999) first studied at the School of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts until 1941 and in 1960 was appointed as a professor. Together with Vilhelm Wohlert, Jørgen Bo designed multiple projects like the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark. 

Vilhelm Wohlert (1920-2007) studied at the School of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under Kaare Klint. From 1968 until 1986, he was employed there as a professor of architecture. Together with Jørgen Bo Wohlert designed multiple projects like the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark. Also important was his work as an independent architect where he accomplished important renovations and designed churches.
