Arne Wahl Iversen
Arne Wahl Iversen was born in 1927 in the small town of Nyborg in Denmark.
He grew up in his fathers’ furniture store and from a young age showed a talent for design. Arne took education as furniture craftsman in Odense and then moved to Copenhagen where he attended the Kunstakademiet (art academy) from 1949-1951 in the school of furniture art lead by Mr. Kaare Klint.
At the age of 25, Arne returned to Nyborg and founded his own studio for furniture design with the idea to make elegant and functional furniture in extraordinary handmade quality.
He soon became one of the most recognized designers of Scandinavian Midcentury Modern Design.
Arne worked until the beginning of 80’ies and has left behind several contemporary design treasures that are now being re-produced 1-1 by Skovgaard Jensen who was one of Arne Wahl Iversen’s favourite partners.
