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 lounge

The Viggo Lounge table is a smaller, more compact version of the original Viggo Dining table. Everything has been kept the same, except it has all been shrunk to fit you throwing yourself on the couch and throwing your feet up after a long day at work.

That means that you still get that same unique Melcke&Vagnby take on the Scandinavian tradition of four, foursided legs supporting a simple, triangular or circular, wooden tabletop. Instead, the heralded design duo opted to double the amount of legs, forming an elegant triangular shape at every support point, and putting a unique spin on old traditions.

The Viggo Lounge table comes in a variety of different colours and materials – and you can even choose whether you want it to be round or rectangular. The same design- and build principles apply either way, though, so you can be sure to enjoy your beautiful table for table for years to come.
