1960s Model 91 “Papa Bear” by Svend Skipper for Skipper Mobler, Denmark
Impressive lounge chair model 91, also known as the “Papa Bear” designed by Svend Skipper and manufactured by Skipper Mobler in Denmark, circa 1960. This beautiful chair has a very comfortable, deep seating experience. The legs of the chair are made of high quality rosewood and so are the details in the armrests, creating a nice harmony in the design. It’s design is similar to Hans J. Wegner’s Papa Bear. The chair is upholstered in a nice classy yellow fabric. The outside of the chair is all original, the foam and straps have been renewed making it good to last for a long time to come! In good condition with minor wear, consistent with age and use, preserving a wonderful patina. Svend Skipper was a designer and furniture producer, who made only on commission. No mass production, but authentic Danish craftsmanship and quality.
