Danish Mid Century teak dining chairs - Arne Vodder model 430 for Sibast.
Arne Vodder originally trained as both an architect and cabinetmaker and completed his studies under Finn Juhl at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He started his own architecture and design studio alongside architect Anton Borg in 1950 producing beautifully designed high end furniture for a number of key Danish Mid-century manufacturers. Most notably he worked with Sibast, a Danish cabinetmaking firm started in 1908 by Peder Olsen Sibast, and is best known for his sculptural chairs and striking sideboards produced in both teak and rosewood.
Vodder represented the 2nd generation of great Danish furniture designers and was particularly active during the 60’s and 70’s. His pieces are instantly recognisable to anyone with an eye for Mid-century Modern design: often simple in form his work projects both strength and elegance as well as an occasional foray into asymmetry and playfulness.
These chairs, in excellent vintage condition and presented in golden teak and soft black nappe leather, are a perfect example of his work: strong and sculptural but also simple and elegant – the makers mark is evident underneath each chair. Their colour and grain would perfectly match another of my listings – a Poul M. Volther drop leaf dining/console table as shown in images 7 & 8.

Very good vintage condition. There are some very light linear depressions in the leather hear and there from where the leather has moulded into the shape of the vintage foam. However these certainly don't detract from the appeal of the chairs as they can only be seen in light when viewed from an angle.
