Croissant Armchair

The Croissant Sofa and Lounge Chair, designed by the Danish architect and designer Illum Wikkelsø in the 50s and 60s, are an elegant and playful version of the traditional Chesterfield sofa and club chair. For Wikkelsø, it was important that a chair should not only be used for good sitting, with your upper body straight but also be comfortable no matter what angle you sit at – or even when you lie down. With this in mind, he wanted to revisit the classic Chesterfield to adapt it to an era of the 1960s that stood for optimism and relaxation. The evocative shape of the Croissant symbolizes the pleasure and art of French life and is thanks to flat piping carefully sewn by hand in the fabric version, and thanks to the leather piping in the leather version, to achieve the required complex curves to obtain. Wikkelsø was also a skilled furniture maker and his love for the wood is reflected in the oiled walnut or FSC-certified oak frame with a slight slope to the back. The collection includes: sofa and armchair. Reintroduced: 2020.
