Pair of Illum Wikkelsø High-Backed Lounge Chairs
Designed in 1968 by the Danish Illum Wikkelsø for Ryesberg Møbler, this pair of high backed lounge chairs feature the original leather upholstery and industrial stylings on the matte chrome frame. The horizontal steel slats of the backrest are encased in leather and its finials are capped in rosewood. The seat of the chair has thick upholstered arms, with a detached seat and back cushion, and a removable head bolster attaches to the chair frame with leather straps. The chair rests on four flattened disc feet.
35.5" width x 40" depth x 37" height; seat height is 16" and arm height is 19".
Excellent vintage condition; all original leather upholstery shows slight age-appropriate wear. Metal frame has been professionally cleaned, matte finish has some small cosmetic flaws.
