The Wonders of Wikkelsø

We rarely see work by Illum Wikkelsø (pronounced Vikkelsow). His work is some of the most intriguing and diverse from the midcentury in Denmark and yet he remains a bit of a enigma.

His multitude of designs, from sofas to desks and easy chairs, reflects a person with a creative mind and a great understanding of design, resulting in some really iconic pieces.

This is an image of an extremely rare V11 sofa which was produced by Holger Christiansen and I have never see in oak before. The sofa befits the name, its long and sleek and has beautiful lines.

We had this model recovered in elmotique tobacco, it just looks so right. Its great to see such a rare iconic piece brought back to life.
