“Rocker” combines the old saddle belt technique with traditional woodworking crafts in a timeless and characteristic design. The visible joints details, as well as the high quality full grain leather, gives the rocking chair comfort and durability. The leathers are carefully selected from the Harness range of vegetable tanned hides by Sorensen Leather with no use of chrome or chemicals. Natural imperfections add character and allow it to age beautifully over time.
The 1965 Pendant was originally designed by Paavo Tynell in 1947. Like many of his best-known designs, the pendant was designed for the Finland House in New York - one of the most ambitious and successful projects of all time to showcase Finnish design. Perfecting the techniques of metal finishes, Tynell developed the 1965 Pendant with his exceptional ability to capture and translate a grace and exuberant lightness into his brass creations. Characterized by its triangular perforation pattern, an artistic detail utilized by Tynell in several of his lighting objects, the 1965 Pendant reflects the distinguished craftsmanship of the Finnish designer. With a frosted glass diffuser that softens the light, the pendant contributes to a subtle and tranquil environment.

The Elephant Chair, designed by Kristian Sofus Hansen and Tommy Hyldahl, is a modern interpretation of Scandinavian minimalism combined with Japanese aesthetics. The design is inspired by Danish upholstered chairs of the 1950’s while drawing visible characteristics from the already iconic Mammoth Chair. The result is a light and elegant lounge chair where the Elephant ear-shaped back gently curves around the body providing superior comfort.
The Elephant chair is hand-crafted with a solid oak wood frame. The chair comes in three frame variations; Natural, Dark Stained, Black and Smoked, and can be upholstered with leather, wool, and sheepskin.
The seat and back are made from the highest quality compression molded oak veneer shells. The two shells are pressed in the same press mold and surround the body in a light soft curve. The legs are designed as one single profile without any visible joints. This enriches the experience of the material strength and exchange between the light and heavy dimensions; “elegant and simple but sturdy without being clumsy”.
