Mogens Voltelen 'Copenhagen' Lounge Chair in Patinated Leather

About the Item

Mogens Voltelen for Niels Vodder, lounge chair model ‘Copenhagen', beech, patinated leather, brass, Denmark, design 1936 The ‘Copenhagen’ lounge chair was designed by Mogens Voltelen in 1936. The 'Copenhagen' model was first presented at The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark in that same year. The chair exhibits elegant contours within its wooden framework, with particular emphasis on the gracefully arched back legs, showcasing a splendid dynamic line. The seat and tall backrest are upholstered in strikingly patinated cognac brown leather, secured in place by brass nails, while leather straps serve as armrests, fastened to the front high legs. Drawing inspiration from classical Spanish folk chairs, the design seamlessly integrates elements of Scandinavian Modern style for a harmonious and sophisticated blend. Danish architect and furniture designer Mogens Voltelen (1908-1995) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He worked together with Vilhelm Lauritzen and Poul Henningsen. In 1928, Voltelen opened his own office and worked at a professor from 1959 until 1978.

    By Mogens Voltelen
    Located in London, GB
    The interplay of straight and curved lines within the chair’s design is very visually satisfying. The rhythm of lines is evident not only in the mahogany wood frame but within the leather too. The seat and back having a hammock construction mean the leather is allowed to bow naturally. The continuous curve that the back legs are carved into and the apron (wooden rail across the front) at the front of the chair both echo the exact arc of the leather hammock...
