  • Description

    Initially introduced back in 1938, Little Petra won instant praise at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition, subsequently winning awards at exhibits in New York and Berlin. Little Petra is indeed surprisingly petite, able to fit into all kinds of spaces, interiors and environments. Low to the ground, open and embracing, it embodies the essence of a lounge chair, allowing for all kinds of seating positions in any cosy setting imaginable. A lot of work has gone into ensuring the utmost comfort, from the seat to the upholstery. Respecting Boesen’s love of natural materials, the legs of the chair have been crafted in oak or walnut. The result is an endearing lounge chair that beckons you to stay.

  • Designer
    Viggo Boesen

    Was trained as an architect, and in the 1930’s he was one of the architect’s, who introduced the new villa type in “Funkis-style” which was popular with a wider audience. Together with Finn Juhl he furnished the first apartment on “Sortedamsdosseringen” in Copenhagen, where his easy chair made of rattan was displayed in the living room. From his workshop he designed a number of pieces of rattan and upholstery furniture, which were constructed according to his philosophy. Furniture whould have an organic flow and embrace the body smoothly and tenderly. It should be a delight to the eye, but also be solid and durable. Viggo Boesen designed a number of pieces of modernist profiled wicker furniture, which were based on the strength and durability of rattan. Viggo Boesen’s FOX lounge chair won the design competition, that the Danish wicker-maker guild held in 1936. His inspiring, imaginative designs made him unique, and put him among the designers of the “Danish golden age”. Sika-Design is proud to be the first to bring a Viggo Boesen design back into the market. FOX lounge chair is the first of many furniture pieces from this pioneer in organic furniture design. Viggo Boesen is little known today but slowly his designs are becoming more and more known and popular around the world. His original furniture is being sold for unbelievable amounts in the worlds leading auction houses, in particularly his Little Petra.
