OW2000 | Egyptian Folding Stool

Material:

oak, soap

Inspired by travel and classic design

The OW2000 Egyptian Folding Stool was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1957. The influence of his travel outside of Denmark is clear to see in this intriguing design. While in Egypt, Wanscher became fascinated with old seats of power, leading to the design of the elegant, lightweight Egyptian Folding Stool with Temple of Thebes furniture in mind. The design of the stool nods gracefully to his source of inspiration, yet is distinctly modern in its expression and construction. The seat, crafted from saddle leather, easily collapses into the chair when folded. Many of Wanscher’s designs have become collectors pieces due to their timeless simplicity and beautiful finish. The OW2000 Egyptian Folding Stool is no exception.

Ole Wanscher

Designer

Ole Wanscher was integral to the aesthetic and functionality of modern Danish design. Having studied under Kaare Klint, he helped shape Danish furniture design as a designer and as an educator when he took over Klint’s professorship at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Wanscher’s classic and contemporary designs made him popular. In 1958, the Danish newspaper Politiken wrote: “Owning a Wanscher chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even several hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts”.
