Philip Bro Ludvigsen was born in Australia in 1962 and educated at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.
He founded his own design studio in Copenhagen and in his short career, he has already designed an impressive number of products and projects ranging from suburban trains to candlesticks.
Did I ever feature Softline? (Just checking Softline in my site search? see right column top): The answer is “No” the Softline that comes up is an Italian factory and this Softline is a Danish company. Hence the addition DK by me.
Originally Sofline was established as the furniture division of K.Balling-Engelsen a/s in 1979. The company was producing polyurethane foam for the Nordic furniture industry. Softline was created to make functional furniture for the modern lifestyle, using the foam.
When I started the series I was not sure I could find 100 decent orange chairs. Prior we had featured only 20 orange chairs. Now even with the help of various people I’ve found more than 100 orange chairs. I’ll feature them in the near future, but the series 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day will be limited to the 100 orange chairs featured.
Thank you all for enduring this diarrhea of chair posts today!
I was planning to feature an Orange Thonet no. 14 as the 100th chair, but couldn’t find a decent one. Therefor I conclude the series with a famous chair Arne Jacobsen originally designed for the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen in the 50ies. After all I’m a hotelier with a chair hobby.
Stay with us in May which we have coined blue chair month.
