Svend Aage Eriksen ‘Penguin’ Easy Chairs in Teak


Svend Aage Eriksen, easy chairs model ‘penguin’, teak, fabric, Denmark, circa. 1960

Stunning Danish lounge chairs designed by Svend Aage Eriksen. The chair has a sculptural quality and light feeling. This is especially created by the floating teak armrests and the conical, slightly tapered legs. The checkered fabric in red and mustard yellow fits perfectly with the warm tone of the teak. The backrest is elegantly curved, which creates a nice contrast to the overall structured design. A simple yet delightful design that radiates style.
