1965 Norwegian "Planet" Swivel Armchair in Ivory Leather by Dysthe for Stokke



Scandinavian Modern enters the Space Age in 1965 with the launch of the Planet Armchair. Designed by Sven Ivar Dysthe and manufactured by Stokke (now Varier) in Norway. The Planet has now become an enduring icon of Scandinavian design with a well-deserved place alongside Arne Jacobsen's contemporaneous pieces: the egg chair and swan chair for Fritz Hansen. This exceptional example features original ivory leather upholstery covering the padded spheroidal seat and arms, as well as removable seat cushion. With true-to-name 360 degrees swivel function, the Planet sits atop a chrome column stand with a four-point star base. Each point of the star base is comprised of chrome diagonally spliced with ebonized wood. The off-white of the leather, the off-black of the ebonized wood and the polished chrome project a subtle opulence for this quite minimalist piece. One of the most luxurious finishing in Scandinavian Modern pieces of the era. This piece mainly served as a display item, more sculpture than chair and is therefore in superb condition. It has been professionally cleaned and re-impregnated so the supple leather will remain so for more decades to come.
