The VLA26 Vega Chair could previously only be admired in the historic concert halls of the Vega music venue in Copenhagen, but has now been put into production by Carl Hansen & Søn in collaboration with Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects. This reissued chair was designed in the 1950s and is a true modernist masterpiece.

The functionalist design profiles Vilhelm Lauritzen's signature aesthetic and appears simple, but is packed with character. Thanks to its well-thought-out, comfortable dimensions, the backrest, as it were, embraces the person sitting on the chair. The chair is expertly crafted from wood and steel. The optional upholstery on the seat and backrest provides even more comfort, while the elegant wooden legs give the stackable design a crafted feel.

  • Vilhelm Lauritzen

    Vilhelm Lauritzen (1894–1984) is one of the most significant architects in the history of Denmark; he was the trail-blazing figurehead of Danish functionalism. A number of his buildings – Nørrebro Theatre (1931–32), Daells Varehus department store (1928–35), Radiohuset (1936-41) and the first airport built in Kastrup (1937–39) – represented the concentrated essence of contemporary life. Other significant buildings to stem from Lauritzen’s drawing board include Folkets Hus (1953–56) better known today as the Vega concert venue, the Shellhuset (1950–51) building and the Danish embassy in Washington (1958–60). In particular the Radiohuset building and the earliest version of Kastrup Airport – both listed today – are considered peerless monuments to modernism in the European genre of construction.
