The Piano Chair Soft (1955) is a versatile chair designed by architect and designer Vilhelm Wohlert and manufactured by Stellar Works. The chair was originally designed to complement Wohlert’s architectural work on the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark. Simple, elegant and supremely functional, the Piano chair showcases the Danish designer’s less-is-more ethos and talent for turning the structural into the sculptural. The revitalisation of the design by Stellar Works rightly restores the Piano chair's position as a mid-century design masterpiece.
The Piano Chair Soft is a versatile all-purpose chair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in dining rooms and restaurants. The chair is part of the Wohlert Collection of iconic designs by Vilhelm Wohlert reissued by Stellar Works which also include armchairs, stools and tables. The chair can be specified in different fabrics and finishes in addition to the model shown here, please refer to the fabrics and finishes guide for more information.
A prolific architect and designer, Vilhelm Wohlert (1920–2007) trained, and later taught, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Alongside his work designing and restoring churches and royal castles, he is especially celebrated for the design of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humbaek, Denmark. Wohlert’s furniture and lighting have become design icons, thanks to the way they often employ structural elements to create sculptural effects.
