Shaped to offer exceptional comfort, the Audo Copenhagen Oda Ottoman is a beautiful piece of furniture from the hand of designer Arnold Madsen. Largely unknown even by design afficienados, Madsen is a little-known modernist designer who produced some beautiful pieces, including the striking curves of this ottoman. The sumptuous upholstery provides a rich tactility, while the stability of the three legs make it the perfect footrest.
A little-known icon of Danish modernism, Arnold Madsen was a driven and determined designer who created ground-breaking pieces of furniture.
Atypical of many other designers of the period, Madsen had no formal training as an architect, designer or cabinetmaker. A man of few words, he did little to advertise his creations. His work explored form and materials, using round shapes to create striking and elegant designs with a characteristic visual lightness.
His work is now available through Audo Copenhagen with the signature Oda Lounge Chair, featuring Madsen’s trademark meticulousness and pioneering drive.
