Philip Arctander

Philip Arctander (1916-1944) was a Danish architect, best known for his Muslingestol chair. The classic chair, also known as the Mussel Chair, was originally created almost by chance: in 1944, Arctander and five other architects were asked to design furniture as part of a competition sponsored by the supplier and store NY FORM A/S. Arctander designed the Muslingestol armchair with beech legs and sheepskin, which was released in a limited edition. The chair eventually became so popular that Nordic suppliers such as Ikea and Vik & Blindheim began to produce their own versions of it. Arctander left furniture design at the turn of the 1940s and 1950s, but the shell-shaped chair is still produced by the Danish company Paustian for the delight of all design lovers.

Philip Arctander has designed pieces for the following brands:
