Reclining Lounge Chair by Bendt Winge


Unique reclining lounge chair with footstool designed by Bendt Winge in 1958 for Bjarne Hansens Verksteder. Frame in massive oak wood and upholstered in lambswool, superb craftsmanship and innovative detailing to the structure. ——— Bendt Winge was one of the first professional interior designers to design for the Norwegian furniture industry. With a solid education both as a cabinet-maker and an interior designer, he established his own design studio in 1934. Winge worked as a freelancer for Møbelindustri I/S for almost thirty years. The collaboration resulted in furniture marked by high quality workmanship. One of Winge’s best sellers was Klaffebord nr. 2, produced by Kleppe Møbelfabrikk. In 1958 he designed an exclusive sliding chair and footstool upholstered in sheepskin for Bjarne Hansens Verksteder. For Romo factories Winge designed the plastic chair R-49. It, and other chairs in the R-series, are produced today by Nordic Comfort Products and have so far sold approximately 5 million pieces.
