Set of Danish Modern Lounge Chairs in Black Leather by Rud Thygesen, 1966

$5,111.11per set

About the Item

Wonderful set of vintage Danish Modern lounge chairs model "VP 66" made in the 1960s by architect Rud Thygesen at Vejen Polstermøbelfabrik and manufactured by Domus Danica. The design is typical for furniture made in Denmark in this period - simple, robust and elegant. The black aniline oxhide has a deep and stunning patina and is hand sewn. The original cushions with feather stuffing are in great shape. The chairs stand on tapered legs of hardwood with a unique wood grain. Really comfortable chair in very good original condition. Both chairs are marked by maker. Rud Thygesen (1932-2019) is considered to be one of the most important designers of the Danish Modern movement continuing the legacy of Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl etc.. Together with Johnny Sørensen he produced several now iconic designs.
