Concept

This armchair was made and released by Niels Vodder Studio in 1958. The wooden frame has an impressive organic design, with lines extending from the legs connected like leaves and branches. Particularly unique is the flowing line from the back to the elbow parts, which can never be created by machines but by careful manual shaving by craftsmen. The excellent shape of this chair is formed by the minimum number of parts, namely the left and right armrests and the back board. It is even compared with "The Chair", one of the representative works of the most famous Danish furniture.
