Concept

A classic safaris armchair designed by Åke Axelsson. After twenty years of work is now Ferdinand complete! The chair’s design is based on some of history’s oldest chairs in the form of still-existing three- to four-hundred-year-old originals, and images from Egypt and ancient Greece.
The chair frame is made of solid untreated beech or oak. Seat and back in sturdy vegetable-tanned leather in tanned, black or dark brown colours. Loose seat cushion of suede. The choice of material and construction requires ecological and environmentally friendly production methods and results in long sustainability. The easy chair is delivered unassembled in a specially designed box.
