Arne Vodder (1926-2009)
Danish architect and designer Arne Vodder should be counted among the most influential Scandinavian mid-century designers. A student to famous furniture designed Finn Juhl, Arne Vodder started designing furniture for Fritz Hansen, France & Son ans Sibast, the latter for which he designed a wide range of furniture that received worldwide recognition and success. His designs were nicely detailed and modest in their expression, almost without exception based on natural materials – rosewood and teak. Pieces by Vodder are regularly seen at high-end 20th century design auctions, and rare pieces can reach really high prices.
