Danish designer and architect, Viggo Boesen, came to prominence in Denmark during the 1930s. His work came to reflect what was known as a 'funkis' style, an abbreviation of the Swedish term, 'funktionalism', which referred to the architectural and design concept of 'Functionalism'. The movement represented stripped back, purposeful design, an ethos that is still at the core of contemporary Nordic design today.
Only a few of Boesen's designs were ever produced, such as Little Petra, but his distinguished, soft and organic approach came to be influential for decades that followed.
