About

Pair of rare Illum WIkkelso lounge chairs, new upholstered in a excellent quality light grey Ploegwool (no.98) on a teak wooden frame. In excellent condition. The design is often referred to as the 'Australia' design. The sharp finishes of the upholstery, the flared armrest and the striking teak fame, make this a truly unique chair. Upholstery in any other fabric is possible. Kristian Illum Wikkelsø (Danish, 1919–1999) was a Danish furniture designer. He belonged to the generation of designers who in the 1950s and 1960s lifted the Danish Design to a worldwide phenomenon. Wikkelsø was first trained as a carpenter in 1938, after which he studied at the School of Applied Arts. He became an employee of Jacob Kjær and the desigenrs duo Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard. In 1954, he started his own studio, Illum Wikkelsø and worked for many Danish manufactures, such as N. Eilersen, Holger Christiansen and Farstrup Sawmill and Stolefabrik. An important partner was CF Christensen, Silkeborg for whom he designed the Plexus series and other light seats.
