About

Ole Wanscher for Poul Jeppesen, pair of 'Colonial' armchairs, rosewood, cane and fabric, Denmark, 1949 Elegant pair easy chairs with a slim, rosewood frame by the Danish designer Ole Wanscher. These chairs show the great craftsmanship and attention to detail that Ole Wanscher is known for. On a woven seat in cane the off-white cushion is placed and joined by a cushion for the backrest. The chairs are marked 'made in Denmark' and 'Design Ole Wanscher' on the cane seating. Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) was educated as an architect under Kaare Klint and later came to teach architecture at the Royal Danish Academy himself. His focus and specialty however was on design. Yet whilst his background was in architecture he laid great importance on construction and the impact of form on space. He also came to be influenced by the new techniques of producing high-quality furniture on an Industrial scale. So the idea of creating furniture for everyone was something that Wanscher was familiar with yet his most exquisite and iconic designs are made by the hands of the best cabinet makers in Denmark. It is therefore that this Danish master has left a legacy of Classic, durable and highly refined pieces.
