Illum Wikkelsø (1919-1999)
Illum Wikkelsø was a Danish architect and designer. Best known for his seating furniture design, Wikkelsø’s aesthetic is considered quintessentially Scandinavian, drawing inspiration from natural, organic form and translating it into furniture that closely embraces the human figure while remaining steadfast and durable. Born in Denmark in 1919, he studied at the School of Arts & Crafts and the Academy of Art Cabinet Design School in Copenhagen, going on to produce celebrated work that is characterized by its sharp contours, low-slung structure, and bold solid-color upholstery. He was influenced by fellow designers Jacob Kjaer and Peter Hvidt, and notably collaborated with several Danish manufacturers including Holgar Christiansen, Komfort, and Soren Willadsen
