Robert W.

  • 1 min read

This piece is designed by Robert W. (1825-1902) who was known as the best wicker maker in Denmark and was appointed purveyor to Her Majesty. Architects came to his workshop to get knowhow and learn about weaving and wicker work. Among those were Danish architects like Arne Jacobsen, Viggo Boesen and Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel, who had many of their prototypes made in Roberts W’s workshop in Copenhagen.

Robert W. was a pioneer in rattan production. What he did to the craftsmanship and the way he challenged the material, lays the groundwork for the way we know rattan furniture today.
