Vilhelm Wohlerts pared-down furniture designs reflect a unique understanding of the structural interplay of design elements where nothing is left to chance. Indeed much the same can be said of his unaccentuated architectural design of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, which showcases the art collections in balanced competition with open views to the surrounding parkland. Vilhelm Wohlerts most celebrated furniture designs include the Louisiana Chair and the Piano Chair - the latter is particularly noted for its sculptural qualities as a result of his less-is-more ethos. The Triangle Chair was serving the visitors of the Louisiana Museum since it opened in 1958 in Humlebk, Denmark. The museum was designed by Vilhelm Wohlert and Jrgen Bo. The Triangle Chairs provide a location to admire the landscape, balancing the beauty of the art inside the museum.

A prolific architect and designer, Vilhelm Wohlert (1920–2007) trained, and later taught, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Alongside his work designing and restoring churches and royal castles, he is especially celebrated for the design of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humbaek, Denmark, to which he and his partner Jørgen Bo devoted more than 30 years. Wohlert’s furniture and lighting have become design icons, thanks to the way they often employ structural elements to create sculptural effects. He was inducted into the Order of the Dannebrog in recognition of his contribution to the Danish design tradition.
