Originally designed in 1962, the Croissant Lounge Chair was a radical new take on the traditional Chesterfield armchair, drawing inspiration from the French pastry. The chair’s playful curves are meticulously hand-stitched by talented artisans, to achieve its distinctive, characterful form.
An instantly recognisable Wikkelso design, the Croissant Lounge Chair is an iconic heirloom piece that will be treasured by design enthusiasts and collectors for generations to come.
A crucial protagonist of the Golden Age of Danish Design during the 1950s and 1960s, Illum Wikkelso is recognised for his commitment to functionality and ergonomics.
First training as a cabinetmaker in his youth, Illum studied at the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts before becoming a member of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Furniture Design in 1943. Throughout his career, Wikkelo developed an instantly recognisable style, often inspired by nature and the Danish landscape, capturing the beauty of his surrounding environment with his designs.
