Erik Wørts, Armchair in Light Grey Fabric, Cuban Mahogany Legs, circa 1941

About

A rare and early Modernist form, this chair possesses cylindrical legs in a noble wood paired with an over-stuffed form, enveloping the sitter. One can see the inspiration and subsequent link of this form in designs of the midcentury, most notably Jean Royère's 'Copenhague' chair of 1955. This model was first exhibited at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition, 1941 and is referenced in the Design Museum Denmark Furniture Index under RP08218. Contemporary to works by danish designers such as Flemming and Mogens Lassen, Viggo Boesen, Arne Jacobsen and Peder Moos.
