    Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) studied under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and later worked at Klint’s design studio before becoming an independent furniture designer. He helped shape Danish furniture design as a designer and as an educator when he took over Klint’s professorship at the Academy.

    Wanscher’s classic and contemporary designs made him popular.  In 1958, the Danish newspaper Politiken wrote: “Owning a Wanscher chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even several hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts”. Today, his modern classics are still revered for their detail and his deep respect for materials.

    Wanscher viewed furniture design as a branch of architecture and emphasised slim dimensions and resilient forms. Creating his best-known designs between the late 1940s and early 1960s, in the post-war era when the “design for all” philosophy emerged. In Denmark, some of design’s biggest names created functional and affordable furniture for the Danish people and the small spaces they lived in. Wanscher took great interest in industrially produced yet high-quality furniture, designing several successful pieces.

    Wanscher was awarded the Copenhagen Carpenters’ Guild Annual Award and the gold medal at the Milan Triennale in 1960

Its playful, almost whimsical form, with splayed legs and an airy structure, embodies the optimistic spirit of the time. The Antelope Chair became a symbol of British modernism and received critical acclaim for its innovative use of materials and elegant design.

His pieces are celebrated for their combination of practicality, comfort, and stylish minimalism, continuing to inspire designers and collectors around the world. Race's contribution to industrial design was significant, and his legacy lives on through his timeless creations.
