Concept

This chair is based on a traditional-style chair Kjaer often made, and was re-designed by Kjaer himself in his late years. Its wooden parts were made morestylish, and the upholstering work was done by traditional manual labor. Use of natural hemp fibers gives the seat a soft and moist feel, thus making the chair comfortable to sit on.
