Arne Vodder for Bovirke, chaise longue, leather, beech, Denmark, 1950s.
Rare chaise longue, designed by Arne Vodder for Bovirke, circa 1950. This chaise longue has an open frame in beech wood and a seating created of braided leather straps. The flowing shape of the frame, together with the pure combination of leather and wood creates a natural character. The frame rests on tapered legs and due to the openness a design that is all about shape and angles is created. The highly patinated leather truly stands out and adds unique value to the chaise longue. Arne Vodder (1926-2009) should be named among the most influential Scandinavian midcentury designers, although he is not as well known as for instance Hans Wegner or Arne Jacobson. Once a student to famous furniture designer Finn Juhl, who later became his friend and business partner. Vodder started out as an architect who designed low-cost housing, later on he began designing furniture. Although his designs are anything but low-quality, his aim for functional design that could be used by all remained important. He designed amongst others for Fritz Hansen & Sibast.
