PIANO CHAIR SOFT (1955)
Wooden restaurant chair
Vilhelm Wohlert’s pared-down furniture designs reflect a unique understanding of the structural interplay of design elements where nothing is left to chance. Indeed much the same can be said of his unaccentuated architectural design of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, which showcases the art collections in balanced competition with open views to the surrounding parkland. Vilhelm Wohlert’s most celebrated furniture designs include the Louisiana Chair and the Piano Chair - the latter is particularly noted for its sculptural qualities as a result of his less-is-more ethos. The Triangle Chair was serving the visitors of the Louisiana Museum since it opened in 1958 in Humlebæk, Denmark. The museum was designed by Vilhelm Wohlert and Jørgen Bo. The Triangle Chairs provide a location to admire the landscape, balancing the beauty of the art inside the museum.
This item came about by combining the time-less chairs of Danish designer Vilhelm Wohlertm with the 600 year-old Japanese tradition of dyeing wood and leather. The natural based indigo dye is the oldest dyeing technique in Japan with only five recognized manufacturers left. Through indigo dyeing, a beautifully harmonious natural colour is created. Indigo dye has clarity of colour, subtle unevenness and colour depth, which are based on Japanese aesthetics. The collection itself is representing a unique interaction between Danish Modernism and Japanese cultural heritage symbolised by the so called "Japan Blue" and the long tradition of craftsmanship.
