Croissant Lounge Chair

Croissant Lounge Chair

The Croissant Lounge Chair, by midcentury Danish architect and designer Illum Wikkelso (1919–1999), represents an elegant and playful take on the traditional typology of the Chesterfield sofa and club chair. The distinctive ‘croissant’ shape reflects the same ingenuity and sense of humour that saw him mount a sail onto his bicycle for speedier travel as a child. Illum Wikkelso redefined these classic pieces for a more relaxed audience emerging in the optimism of the 1960s.
