The clean, classic OW150 daybed designed by Ole Wanscher in 1963 features a single long cushion that appears to float above an angular, solid oak frame. It is, however, supported by a delicate yet strong cotton webbing. Hand-sewn buttons create a simple square pattern that highlights the daybed’s geometric form, while an optional bolster pillow enhances comfort and relaxation.
The OW150 daybed clearly shows how Wanscher was intrigued and inspired by classic furniture design. He studied it wherever he went, incorporating the styles and elements he felt best merged functionality and aesthetics into his own work. His modern classics are still revered for their detail and his deep respect for materials.
