Illum Wikkelso | Danish Modern Three-Seater Teak Sofa - Restored

Illum Wikkelso (1919 – 1999) was a Danish furniture designer who studied at the Copenhagen Schools of Arts and Crafts.  Wikkelso understood furniture should be structurally sound, solid, and durable, but should also please the eye.  His work characterizes simplicity, beauty and functionality.

Wikkelso drew inspiration from the natural landscape of Denmark and organic forms. Clean lines and soft movements are found in his designs.

After working under the tutelage of Jacob Kjaer, we went to work for Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard-Nielson. In 1954 he opened his own design studio in Arhus.  He designed for several notable Danish furniture makers including Komfort/Dansk Form, N. Eilersen, and Soren Willadsen.
