Viggo Boesen is considered by many to be a key driver in the design aesthetic of the 30s and 40s. In order to understand the design style of this period, one must know Boesen and the funkis style he popularized. Boesen’s pieces are both delightful and durable — smooth, yet, solid. The Fox lounge chair, one of Boesen’s most iconic and famous designs, has been heralded as the quintessential funkis design, winning a prestigious design competition in 1936. His unique modernist design aesthetic coupled with the hard wearing qualities of natural rattan made him unique and imaginative like no other designer of the “golden age”.
