Referencing the values of honest craftsmanship and Scandinavian materiality, the Cover Side Chair is an elegant perspective on the timeless wooden chair. With its curved backrest and folded armrest covers, the Cover Side Chair explores the possibilities of wooden veneer, paired with a deep comfort, modern expression and base in solid wood. Non- upholstered Cover Side Chairs are stackable up to 5 chairs.
Thomas Bentzen: “The Cover Side Chair is born from a desire to bring modern perspectives to the archetypal wooden chair. I wanted to give the design a crisp and contemporary expression through its thin plywood material, paired with the solid and grounded sentiment of its frame and base in solid wood. With the details of its curved backrest that folds gently around the back legs and its warm materiality, the stackable Cover Side Chair translates the ideas of Scandinavian craftsmanship into a modern design language.”
Materials The Cover Side Chair is made in wood with a water-based lacquer, the curved back and seat in veneer and its base and legs in solid oak. The wood is folded around the chair’s front legs. This technically innovative wood layering helps lock the elements of the chair together. Available with textile and leather upholstery as made-to-order options.
