Pair of orchestra chairs for musicians by Vilhelm Lauritzen

This pair of orchestra chairs was designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894-1984) for musicians to be seated comfortably in the concert hall inside ‘Radiohuset’ (The Radio Building) – the now former headquarters of national Danish broadcaster DR.

Vilhelm Lauritzen designed Radiohuset from 1935 to 1945 when it was officially opened. It was a time when radio was a new and exciting form of technology that gave the people an experience out of the ordinary, and therefore when it came to the designing the interior of Radiohuset that too had to be out of the ordinary. Very exclusive materials were used and everything was custom made. A young Finn Juhl was also part of the project as he worked for V. Lauritzen at the time.

The frame of the chairs is solid oak and they are upholstered with light wool fabric. Their legs swirl elegantly down to the brass feet. Both seat and backrest of the chairs are adjustable to suit specific needs for comfort.

The chairs are not only suitable for musicians, also creative artist such as painters and writers could benefit from them. The chairs artistic design would furthermore add elegance to most locations.
