Egyptian Folding Stool by Ole Wanscher in Indian Rosewood and Black Leather

About

Egyptian Folding Stool by Ole Wanscher in Indian Rosewood and Black Leather. Wanscher's Egyptian stool is one of the icons of Danish design. As was typical of Wanscher, he looked back to previous furniture forms for inspiration and reinterpretation. In this case it was an Egyptian folding chair from 1500 BC that he had seen at the Egyptology Museum in Berlin in 1934. In ancient Egypt the folding stool was a commander's chair that followed the king and thus became the seat of power wherever the king went. While being useful as extra seating as well as a footstool, it is primarily a work of applied art; its sculptural qualities make it Stand out in any room. Wanscher introduced this stool in 1957 at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition. This stool was made by P.J. Furniture in Copenhagen in 2000 in a small edition in Indian rosewood. The underside of the stool carries the cabinetmaker's plaque. Pairs are also available, both in Indian rosewood and in mahogany.
