As a third-generation company, our passion is to create products with first-class design, quality and comfort. It has been important ever since it all started in 1940. Therefore, we take good care of our precious heritage, work closely with skilled designers, and produce all our furniture at our own factory in Sykkylven.
A crucial part of our collection are our Norwegian design icons, all of which are an important part of Norwegian design history. These three chairs were designed between 1960 and 1971, but are just as relevant today, if not more relevant than ever!
Model 711 – Fredrik A. Kayser, 1960
Even though it was designed over 60 years ago, the chair is just as relevant today and stands strong as a Norwegian design icon. The Nordic aesthetics make the chair easily adapt to modern architecture. But a chair is nothing without high comfort, the angle of the chair makes you sit correctly and comfortably.
Light, modern and functional are all characteristics of Fredrik A. Kayser’s design. Model 711 shows clear references to Danish design and radiates good craftsmanship. Kayser designed the chair in 1960 and the same year he won first prize in the chair competition for the Industry Council for Furniture.
