Illum Wikkelsø Cubic Lounge Chair in Brown Leather

US$3,350

About

Illum Wikkelsø, lounge chair, leather, brushed steel, Denmark, 1960s. This eccentric club chair is well-executed embodying a solid construction. The seating is characterised by clear lines and right-angled shapes that contribute to the chair's sophisticated appearance. The chair has a natural look due to the brown leather tufted cushions designed to provide an ultimate level of comfort. The body rests on four disc-shaped legs executed in brushed steel that give an elegant and light touch to the quite solid chair. Illum Wikkelsø (1919-1999) was trained as a carpenter and later studied at the School of Arts & Crafts in Copenhagen. He first worked for the Danish furniture maker Jacob Kjær and the architect Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard until 1954 when he opened his studio on the outskirts of Aarhus. Here he designed especially simple and elegant seating with great functionality now considered classics of Danish furniture design. The style of his work varies from Kaare Klint's classicism Kaare Klints to the soft organic craft by Arne Jacobsen. Please note that the photos function as an example. The actual lounge chair differs in patina and wear. The brown leather is in patinated, good condition. Minor traces of age and use are visible on the cushions and shell of this lounge chair.
