Inspired by travel and classic design

The OW2000 Egyptian Stool was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1957. The influence of his travel outside of Denmark is clear to see in this intriguing design. While in Egypt, Wanscher became fascinated with old seats of power, leading to the design of the elegant, lightweight Egyptian Stool with Temple of Thebes furniture in mind. The design of the stool nods gracefully to his source of inspiration, yet is distinctly modern in its expression and construction. The seat, crafted from saddle leather, easily collapses into the chair when folded. Many of Wanscher’s designs have become collectors pieces due to their timeless simplicity and beautiful finish. The OW2000 Egyptian Stool is no exception.

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985), was born in Copenhagen in 1903 and was an architect and professor of architecture with furniture designs as his specialty. He came to shape Danish furniture, both as an active designer and as a master teacher. His furniture designs are now considered to be modern classics - sophisticated and functional with an exquisite attention to detail. Construction and form was of the utmost importance to Ole Wanscher, treating furniture design as if it was a branch of architecture. He studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and also worked for the master himself from 1924-1927, before becoming an independent achitect specializing in furniture design. He later followed in Kaare Klint's footsteps as a professor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts with a master in furniture design.
