Based on Viggo Boesen’s original drawings from the 1930s, Little Petra VB2 promises the same exceptional craftsmanship as the lounge chair – but with even more space for you to sink in. From the hand-stitched upholstery to the wooden frame built by hand, Little Petra is made from premium materials. Its legs are available in oak or walnut.
Viggo Boesen is a relatively little known architect who contributed to Denmark’s signature design aesthetic in the 1930s. In particular, his work reflected Scandinavian ‘Funkis’ style, a Nordic take on Art Deco. In contrast to massproduced materials and the less-is-more approach from the Bauhaus school of thought, Boesen brought a soft, warm and almost naive aspect to design, ushering in new forms of upholstered furniture.
Only a few of his designs were ever produced, yet Boesen’s original ideas, organic shapes and expressive design lingo were precursors to Denmark’s subsequent stance on modernism in the decades that followed.
