A.J. Iversen

b. Sønder Bjert, Denmark, 1888

Andreas Jeppe Iversen was a Danish cabinetmaker and furniture designer. Iversen grew up in the Danish countryside and started out as a fisherman like his father. However, he quickly developed an interest in furniture design, particularly historical pieces, and in 1916 he qualified as a cabinetmaker. In 1925 he exhibited at L'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes with furniture designed by the architect Kaj Gottlob, for which Iversen won an honorary award.


Among his collaborators were Kaj Gottlob, Viggo Boesen, the Flemming brothers, Mogens Lassen, and Ole Wanscher, with whom he collaborated throughout most of his career. Iversen was the cabinetmaker who realized some of Ole Wanscher's signature designs, such as the Egyptian Stool and T Chair. Iversen was Alderman of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild from 1951 to 1961 and was awarded both the Danish Order of the Dannebrog and the Swedish Order of Vasa for his cabinetmaking achievements. Today, Iversen is recognized as one of the pivotal cabinetmakers who paved the way for Danish modern design.
