Viggo Boesen Was trained as an architect, and in the 1930s he was one of the architect's, who introduced the new villa type in "Funkis-style" which was popular with a wider audience.
Together with Finn Juhl he furnished the first apartment on "Sortedamsdosseringen" in Copenhagen, where his easy chair made of rattan was displayed in the living room.
From his workshop he designed a number of pieces of rattan and upholstery furniture, which were constructed according to his philosophy. Furniture would have an organic flow and embrace the body smoothly and tenderly. It should be a delight to the eye, but also be solid and durable.
