Description

&Tradition’s Little Petra lounge chair charms with its compact size, flowing silhouette and soft sheepskin upholstery. Little Petra was designed by the Danish architect Viggo Boesen, and first introduced at Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1938. The petite, friendly chair was named after Boesen’s mother-in-law. With its simple and organic appearance, Little Petra is a lovable example of the Danish funkis style of the 1930s. With only about 30 pieces ever produced, the chair became an ultra-rare, highly priced item at auctions. Thanks to &Tradition’s new production, Little Petra is now available to all design enthusiasts around the globe.

Viggo Boesen

Viggo Boesen was a Danish architect who had a great influence on the Danish functionalism of the 1930s and 1940s. The most essential elements in his work were the use of rattan and different upholsteries, that gave a light and organic touch for his furniture and other designs. One of his best known pieces is the awarded Fox lounge chair, which was made of rattan and released in 1936.
