A Modern Take on Scandinavian Virtues

It wasn’t long ago that Scandinavian design and culture was… something. Just something – not the billion-trillion dollar industry and culture defining thing it is today – rather, it was more of a footnote in the giant book of beautiful design history and a fleeting thought in the worldwide conscience.

But things changed for the better, and the world started to notice what was happening in the formerly mostly unnoticed part of northern Europe. And that’s in no small part due to design families like Viggo.

The Viggo family is a modern take on the steadfast foundation that made Scandinavian design what it is today. Everything from dining table to chair has been kept in true Scandi, minimalistic fashion but with a few modern tweaks that makes every single piece uniquely its own. The Viggo family consists of a dining chair, a dining table, a bench, a bar stool and a lounge table.

Mencke&Vagnby

Mencke&vagnby is a modern design studio founded by German industrial designer and artist Karina Mencke and Danish designer and architect Marcus Vagnby. Their approach to design is driven by a combination of curiosity and perfectionism. With an open and playful mind, the duo aims to design objects that make a difference. Products with long-lasting durability, function and appeal.

Viggo bar

Viggo Bar is a simple bar stool with a few not-so-simple details. It was originally made by Melcke&Vagnby, the German slash Danish design duo that combine the curiosity of Scandinavian design with the steadfast ruggedness and solidity of its German ditto.

That combination shows in a few places. For instance; take a look at the four, foursided legs – Scandinavian design 101. Now notice the metal ring that’s been added for both leg support and solidity – Classic German pragmatism doing what it does best.

Viggo Bar is the outcome of the best of two already great worlds. You can customize both the frame’s tree sort and the cushion’s cover material. Any combination is ensured to look beautiful and last you for years and years to come.
