This chair belongs in a museum, it is simply put a work of art. The frame is period mid-century Brazilian Rosewood which is now an endangered species and can no long be harvested, the supports are all steel and you have it upholstered with period nero leather. This chair is a a pleasure to behold from every angle

Condition wise the piece has been on a journey, I purchased it from Lyon in France, it then was hand delivered to my French Polisher who washed the timber back and traditionally French polished it, then it was off to the upholsterer to have a new, Italian russet hide seat cushion made, this was done using the template of the original so its a perfect match, the only difference is the internals now are feather filled as apposed to the more basic foam which had perished, lastly it was off to my leather polishers to have the whole piece hand dyed back to its original nero black

The chair metal work retains all the original age related patina, the rest of the chair looks and feels basically new. The only thing that hasn't been restored as it can't be is the base operation, the chair is set in one height and the base can be separated from the top

Dimensions:

Height:- 105cm fixed

Width:- 77cm

Depth:- 77.5cm

Seat height:- 51.5cm

Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.

Arne Vodder was trained by Finn Juhl, who became his friend and business partner. Before concentrating on furniture alone, in 1951 he opened his own studio with the architect Anton Borg. Together they designed some 1,100 low-cost houses which proved to be a great success. In the 1950s and 1960s, at a time when Denmark was receiving international recognition for its furniture, he designed a wide range of items. Despite the originality and timelessness of his style, he is not as well known as contemporaries such as Børge Mogensen and Arne Jacobsen. Yet his works are simple and modest, crafted in natural materials such as rosewood and teak and, in particular, are free of sharp edges

One of his more notable pieces is a rosewood sideboard with drawers shaped to avoid the need for handles. The timeless design of the piece combines exotic wood with coloured panels. Another classic is his chaise longue in teak and beech covered in wicker patent leather and produced by Bovirke. Other pieces include tables, desks, sofas and hall furniture, inspired by nature with soft, organic, elegantly curved lines

From the 1950s, Vodder worked with the furniture company Sibast on several sets of office furniture which did particularly well on the American market, even arousing the interest of Jimmy Carter. In the 1960s, the furniture not only reached the White House but could be seen in banks, airline offices, embassies and hotels across the globe. Vodder also arranged international exhibitions in Sweden, England, Austria and the United States together with Verner Panton and Nanna Ditzel. Vodder worked with a number of manufacturers including Cadovius, Nielaus, Erik Jorgensen, Fritz Hansen, Sibast furniture and latterly Kircodan in Bangkok
