The OW150 daybed by Ole Wanscher is amongst his many designs that have become collector’s items by virtue of their timeless simplicity and beautiful finishes. The distinctive OW150 daybed is ideal for comfort and relaxation in a contemporary setting.
Elegant simplicity and beautiful design
The clean, classic OW150 daybed designed by Ole Wanscher in 1949 features a single long cushion that appears to float above an angular, solid oak frame. It is, however, supported by a delicate yet strong cotton webbing. Hand-sewn buttons create a simple square pattern that highlights the daybed’s geometric form, while an optional bolster pillow enhances comfort and relaxation.
The OW150 daybed clearly shows how Wanscher was intrigued and inspired by classic furniture design. He studied it wherever he went, incorporating the styles and elements he felt best merged functionality and aesthetics into his own work. His modern classics are still revered for their detail and his deep respect for materials.
