Arne Vodder Reupholstered Set of Dining Chairs in Cognac Leather

About

Arne Vodder for Sibast, set of 8 reupholstered dining chairs model 62A, rosewood and cognac leather, Denmark, 1960s. This classic set of eight chairs is executed in leather and rosewood and designed by the Danish designer Arne Vodder. These chairs are good examples of the great craftsmanship of Arne Vodder. The seating and back show a simple and functional design and each chair has a modest overall aesthetics. The edges of the rosewood frame are rounded but have a strong, upward pointing force. The chairs have been recently reupholstered in high quality cognac leather by the experienced craftsmen in our in-house atelier. With high attention for the original, they made sure these wonderful set retained its value. Arne Vodder (1926-2009) should be counted among the most influential Scandinavian midcentury designers, although he is not as well known as for instance Hans Wegner or Arne Jacobson. Once a student to famous furniture designer Finn Juhl, who later became his friend and business partner. Vodder started out as an architect who designed low-cost housing, later on he began designing furniture. Although his designs are anything but low-quality, his aim for functional design that could be used by all remained important. He designed amongst others for Fritz Hansen & Sibast.

About Arne Vodder (Designer)

Along with Vernor Panton, Arne Vodder was a leading light of what might be called the “second generation” of forward-thinking 20th-century Danish furniture designers — those who, following in the footsteps of Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and others, first applied the skills, traditions and philosophical tenets of Danish craftsmanship to a modern furniture idiom.

     As a graduate student in architecture trained by Finn Juhl, Vodder made his mark in the 1960s, when modern design had gained wide acceptance, particularly in the business world. Accordingly, many of Vodder’s chairs are quiet in form — projecting an air of sturdiness and strength, rather than avant-garde styling.

     Vodder’s aesthetic flair was very pronounced in his cabinets and storage pieces — sideboards, bookcases, credenzas and buffets. In such pieces, Vodder liked to play with asymmetry. His bookcases often have a seemingly random array of variously sized shelves and nooks. A typical Vodder sideboard might have four sections, each different in purpose and look: an open stack of vertical shelves, and other cupboards covered with sliding panels in contrasting colored laminates and wood veneers. As you will see from the works on these pages, Arne Vodder had a sense of what kind of design was appropriate for which space: sobriety in the boardroom; playfulness at home.
