Sale price$37,500.00

Mogens Voltelen for Niels Vodder, lounge chair model ‘Copenhagen', beech, patinated leather, brass, Denmark, design 1936

The ‘Copenhagen’ lounge chair was designed by Mogens Voltelen in 1936. The 'Copenhagen' model was first presented at The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark in that same year. The chair exhibits elegant contours within its wooden framework, with particular emphasis on the gracefully arched back legs, showcasing a splendid dynamic line. The seat and tall backrest are upholstered in strikingly patinated cognac brown leather, secured in place by brass nails, while leather straps serve as armrests, fastened to the front high legs. Drawing inspiration from classical Spanish folk chairs, the design seamlessly integrates elements of Scandinavian Modern style for a harmonious and sophisticated blend.

Danish architect and furniture designer Mogens Voltelen (1908-1995) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He worked together with Vilhelm Lauritzen and Poul Henningsen. In 1928, Voltelen opened his own office and worked at a professor from 1959 until 1978.
