WULFF KARANDASH

by Viggo Boesen¹, 1930

The Wulff ATD2 lounge armchair with fabric finish in Karandash by &tradition is a highlight that combines the highest craftsmanship with outstanding comfort. The beautifully shaped Wulff lounge armchair invites to linger – alone with a book, a latte macchiato or long drink, or for long conversations in convivial company or even a digestif after business. In addition to Karandash, the vegan versions of the Wulff ATD2 armchair are available with two other types of fabric: Hallingdahl and Karakorum. At TAGWERC Design STORE they are listed as separate items as well as the Wulff ATD2 armchair upholstered with sheepskin.

Wulff Armchair Karandash 005

“Wulff, a lounge chair whose upholstered form pays tribute to the handcrafted design of the 1930s”, with these words the manufacturer &tradition introduced the lounge chair in 2021. The interior design experts at TAGWERC Design STORE attribute the design to Danish architect and designer Viggo Boesen. On the one hand, the design of the lounge chair Wulff bears Boesen’s creative signature, on the other hand, Wulff ATD2 is reminiscent of the lounge armchair ‘Hos’, which Viggo Boesen designed in 1934. Hos Wulff, an outstanding Danish cabinetmaker and friend of Boesen, produced a few pieces of this chair at the time, which fetch top prices at design auctions.

As with the Little Petra lounge chair, Wulff also convinces with a special shape despite its compact size. Like a kind of negative form, the backrest of the Wulff lounge chair reproduces the anatomical silhouette of the person sitting on it. Thanks to this embeddedness, the Wulff lounge armchair feels particularly cosy and comfortable and playfully outshines large, voluminous wing chairs. Wooden armrests provide that extra portion of comfort.

Low to the ground, open and ‘hugging’, Wulff embodies the essence of a lounge armchair and allows an comfortable seating position in every conceivable environment: lobby, lounge, living room, club, gents, nursing room, children’s room, bedroom, hallway, office. As with the Little Petra armchair, the Wulff Lounge Chair is designed for maximum comfort and quality. The use of natural materials is at the centre of the manufacturing process: Legs and armrests of the chair are made of oak or walnut and pick up on Viggo Boesen’s love of natural materials.

In addition to the version covered with sheepskin, the Karandash fabric cover in particular supports this idea of cosiness and well-being and is characterized by special properties. Like Karakorum, the Karandash cover is inspired by Astrakan furs as a so-called bouclé fabric. The slightly three-dimensional surface of the fabric creates a pleasant depth and fullness. Unlike Karakorum, however, Karandash has a purely matte look and is made exclusively of wool and cotton. Designed for high stress, Karandash nestles perfectly against the harmoniously rounded shape of the Wulff ATD2 armchair and brings it into its own.

For the interior design experts at TAGWERC, Wulff by &tradition is a lounge armchair that has what it takes to become a favorite place.
