The designer: Illum Wikkelsø
Danish furniture designer Illum Wikkelsø (1919–1999) believed that furniture should be made to last, to pamper the body and to please the eye. With his clear design aesthetics and in-depth knowledge of materials, he was one of the protagonists in making the Danish style an international phenomenon. Wikkelsø worked with clean lines, but he also had a strong sense of organic expression and was deeply inspired by nature - especially the Danish landscape. His profound understanding of form was accompanied by a deep commitment to exemplary levels of functionality and ergonomics.While Wikkelsø was in many ways in keeping with the design aesthetics of his time, he had both the courage and the ability to develop his own innovative style , which was often expressive and surprising, but always focused on sublime craftsmanship and an eye for detail.
