Ole Wanscher for P . Jeppesens Møbelfabrik, set of six armchairs model 'PJ412', mahogany and leather, Denmark, 1960s
Modest en simplistic set of dining chairs designed by Ole Wanscher in the 1960s. These chairs are very comfortable thanks to the remarkable wide seats and the slightly tilted backrests. This set is made with a mahogany frame, which is crafted in a very sculptural way; slim legs and rounded, wider armrests form a beautiful combination.
The chairs are upholstered in brown leather, that shows signs of age and use, with a nice patina. A few seats contain small tears. Therefore reupholstery is necessary.

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and worked at Klint’s design studio before becoming an independent furniture designer. While traveling through Egypt and Europe, Wanscher found inspiration that he incorporated into his own unique design aesthetic.
