Great Dane founder Anton first came across Illum Wikkelsø’s work a decade ago. Sometimes a little unconventional, Illum Wikkelsø’s work is some of the most intriguing and diverse of the period. Wikkelsø was often quoted as saying, “A chair is for lying, not just sitting. It should be comfortable no matter what angle you sit.” Wikkelsø pieces reside in the offices of presidents and kings around the world. The exclusive Wikkelsø range at Great Dane has been growing over the last few years and now includes three sofas, two armchairs and a coffee table. A true pioneer, Wikkelsø was always ahead of the curve, driven in his search for quality. His pieces are as at home in modern living areas as they were in 1950.
