Viggo Boesen (1907-1985) was a Danish architect who contributed to the Danish design aesthetics in the 1930s. From his workshop, Viggo designed a number of rattan and upholstery furniture, which was constructed according to his philosophy: Furniture should have an organic flow and embrace the body smoothly and tenderly. They should be a delight to the eye, but also be solid and durable.
The Fox chair was the first of many furniture pieces from Viggo Boesen and with that he won the design competition, held by the Danish wicker-maker guild in 1936. His inspiring, imaginative designs made him unique and put him among the designers of the “Danish Golden Age.”
