Description

Ole Wanscher is one of the leading lights in mid century Scandinavian design. He was the senior professor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1955 until 1973 and has left a lasting legacy in furniture design.

This epic sofa is aptly named the 'Senator'. It features a refined frame incorporating generous pieces of luminous teak. Sculpted armrests raise up to an elegant tip and drop down to the floor, creating a memorable statement for any modern living area.
