Cuban Mahogany Lounge Chair by Ole Wanscher

$14,500per item

About

A generously proportioned Scandinavian Modern lounge chair designed by Ole Wanscher for A.J. Iversen. This chair features an architectural exposed Cuban mahogany frame with shaped and discretely curved arms. Seat and Back cushions upholstered in warm gray wool Savak. Made in Denmark, circa 1950s. Danish architect and designer Ole Wanscher studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under the architect and designer Kaare Klint. Wanscher was a key player in Denmark's Mid-Century Modern movement and preferred to explore Classic yet minimal aesthetics informed by precise study of the human body. In the postwar era, the simple and refined aesthetic he achieved helped define Scandinavian design, and many of his pieces became staples in Scandinavian homes.
