Description

The Exterior collection is made from our signature AluRattan™ which consists of a strong aluminum frame woven with ArtFibre™, allowing some of our most popular pieces to be used outdoors. Viggo Boesen popularized the funkis style that was key to the "Danish Golden Age" of design in the 1930s and 40s. Designed in 1936, the Fox Chair was Boesen's first piece. Smooth and solid with elegant curves, this striking piece won a prestigious design award and cemented Boesen's legacy. The AluRattan™ makes this version ultra-durable, maintenance-free, and able to withstand any weather conditions.

Viggo Boesen

Viggo Boesen is considered by many to be a key driver in the design aesthetic of the 30s and 40s. In order to understand the design style of this period, one must know Boesen and the funkis style he popularized. Boesen’s pieces are both delightful and durable — smooth, yet, solid. The Fox lounge chair, one of Boesen’s most iconic and famous designs, has been heralded as the quintessential funkis design, winning a prestigious design competition in 1936. His unique modernist design aesthetic coupled with the hard wearing qualities of natural rattan made him unique and imaginative like no other designer of the “golden age”.
