Rosewood & Black Leather 'Capella' Arm Chair by Illum Wikkelsø

About the Item

Arm chair model 4 from the Capella Series designed in 1958 by Danish designer Illum Wikkelsø executed in beautiful Rosewood with black leather loose cushions. Made by Danish manufacturer Niels Eilersen. Wikkelsø's background in cabinetry instilled in him a profound sense of materials and excellent attention to detail. He worked extensively with teak and rosewood and captured delicate and sculptural forms in his designs. Wikkelsø believed that furniture should be built to last, combined with comfort and pleasing to the eye. All this is reflected in the Capella chair, the robust frame with the more graceful armrests (note the beautiful detailing at front) make it a timeless and elegant chair that provides exquisite seating comfort.
