Little Petra VB1 lounge chair by Viggo Boesen. New edition. Initially introduced back in 1938, Little Petra won instant praise at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition, subsequently winning awards at exhibits in New York and Berlin. It’s one of just a few designs by architect Viggo Boesen, who became associated with Denmark’s signature design aesthetic in the 1930s called funkis style. Little Petra is surprisingly petite, able to fit into all kinds of spaces, interiors and environments. Low to the ground, open and embracing, it embodies the essence of a lounge chair, allowing for all kinds of seating positions in any cosy setting imaginable. And Tradition reissues the Little Petra chair in two finishes: white oiled oak or walnut and upholstered with fabric or sheep wool.

Boesen, Viggo


Viggo Boesen was trained as an architect and in the 1930’s he made the funkis style popular among a wider audience by introducing a new villa type in Denmark.

His philosophy was furniture design with an organic flow that embraces the body smoothly and tenderly, is a delight to the eye as well as solid and durable. 

Inspired by a design competition held by the Danish wicker-maker guild in 1936, Viggo Boesen embarked on rattan furniture design combining modernist style with the hard wear qualities of the rattan material.

Viggo Boesen’s FOX lounge chair won the design competition in 1936. His inspiring, imaginative designs made him unique and put him among the designers of the “Danish golden age”.
