About this item

The colonial chair is one of Wanscher’s best loved and most iconic designs, drawing influence from British and French Colonial furniture of the 18th-19th centuries. Produced by Poul Jeppesen, this example comes in highly figured Brazilian rosewood with woven rattan cane seat. This example is a first edition with the rattan seat weaved directly onto the rosewood frame. Later versions had a removeable rattan seat woven over stained beech which decreased production costs.

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985), was integral to the aesthetic of modern Danish design. He studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and later worked at Klint’s design studio before becoming an independent furniture designer. He helped shape Danish furniture design as a designer and as an educator when he took over Klint’s professorship at the Academy.

Wanscher created his best-known designs between the late 1940s and early 1960s, in the post-war era. His designs earned him numerous accolades, including the Copenhagen Carpenters’ Guild Annual Award and the Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale in 1960.
