High back armchair by Ole Wanscher for P. Jeppensen
Ole Wanscher was an architect and professor of architecture specialising in furniture designs. He was mainly influenced by Professor Kaare Klint, with whom he worked from 1924 through 1927. Nowadays, his pieces of furniture are considered to be modern classics, made with an unusual eye for detail.
In the 1950s, he also started working with P. Jeppesens Møbelfabrik A/S. This collaboration continued until the end of his life.
Characteristic of designs by Ole Wanscher is his search for slender dimensions and resilient shapes.
The armchair has a mahogany frame upholstered in a beige wool fabric.
