Concept

The Council Chair was designed in 2011 by Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard for the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.

The chair is well-thought out, shaped specifically with the human body in mind and made in form-pressed patented 3D veneer. Since the chair was designed for the ‘secretaries table’ in the Trusteeship Council Chamber it is crafted to ensure comfort throughout a long day.

Furthermore, the chair nicely complements good architecture, well-designed interiors and is thus ideal for the executive offices, VIP conference facilities, hotels and restaurants as well as private use for dining and working.

The chair is available in oak or walnut and is carefully upholstered in fabric or leather on a base of molded foam. The chair can also be ordered fully upholstered for a uniform expression. The elegant 4-star swivel base of the chair is cast aluminium with a polished finish.
