Viggo Boesen is a trained architect and in the 1930s he was among the architects, who introduced the new Villa style Funkis. It became popular among the general population. Together with Finn Juhl, he furnished the first apartment in the Sortedamsdoszation in Copenhagen, where his armchair in rattan was exhibited in the living room. From his workshop he designed a selection of rattan and upholstered furniture in line with his own design philosophy. The furniture should have an organic flow and embrace the body smoothly and comfortably. The design must be comfortable for the eyes, but at the same time the furniture must be sturdy and durable. Viggo Boesen has designed a myriad of modernist wicker furniture, where he has availed of rattans strength and durability. Viggo Boesen won with his FOX armchair in the 1936 design contest held by the Danish Kurvemagerlaug. His inspiring and imaginative designs make his furniture unique and place him among the best Danish designers in Danish design's heyday. Sika-Design is proud to be the first to revive Viggo Boesen's designs and bring them back into the market for Danish quality Design. Viggo Boesen was a pioneer in organic furniture design and the FOX chair is just the first of his many furniture designs. Viggo Boesen is only little-known today, but his designs are slowly emerging in popularity around the world. His original furniture sold for large sums at the world's leading auction houses, especially his armchair "the Little Petra".
