Product details

Seller's Notes: Scandinavian beauty. This splendid Danish Modern side chair is more than half a century old and still as lovely as ever. It is an outstanding and hard-to-find teak piece designed by Danish architect Vilhelm Wohlert for Søborg Møbler in 1959. Wohlert's designs were some of the most expressive of any Danish designer. This solid teak chair, a rare un-upholstered version of Model 420, is gorgeous. The curved rear posts, the floating seat perched on top of small pyramid blocks, and the steam-bent back rest and dished seat are some of the design highlights. You will also love the exposed mortise-and-tenon joinery that attaches the front and rear legs to the rest of the frame. With its deeply curved back rest, this sleek design draws its inspiration from the ancient Greek klismos form and is not unlike the Eames DCM chairs of the same period. Elegant triangular blocks "float" the curved dish seat above the frame. The wood is beautiful with its original finish. Made by and labeled: "Soborg Mobler - Made in Denmark" on the bottom. This chair does have a past: previous splits in the frame have been skillfully and solidly repaired. I have used this chair at my desk without any problems for several years (I weigh 130 lbs), but it should be treated with care or as an elegant, sculptural piece. "Fragile" exaggerates the situation, but its eventual owner should be mindful of these issues.
