Originally designed in 1965 for the furniture maker Holger Christiansen, the V11 went on to become one of Wikkelsø’s most wildly successful designs, generating demand all over the world. It has been featured everywhere from the office of the president of Japan to the palace of the king of Saudi Arabia, and has sustained an unwavering appeal among collectors and design aficionados in every decade since its launch.
The V11’s success is largely down to its fine craftsmanship and distinctive design. The tall trapezoidal body of the chair stands on four tapering solid wooden legs, each in an inverted pyramid shape that echoes the angular contours of the arms and backrest. This gives the V11 a sharply defined and unmistakably modernist silhouette, while maintaining the look of a classic lounge chair. This iconic aesthetic is matched in the accompanying ottoman, which, used in combination with the lounge chair, opens up the variety of positions available to the sitter still further, while being a comfortable perch in its own right.
