Description:

Designed by Rune Krøjgaard and Knut Bendik Humlevik the Shanghai Chair is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese Horseshoe Chair. It can be said that the design goes more than 700 years back as the inspiration for the armrest was found in a chair dating back to the Yuan Dynasty, a period where Marco Polo was still in China.

The Shanghai Chair features a steam bent solid ash wood frame and a seat of paper cord or leather. The back and the armrest play a central role in the chair’s construction, giving it an iconic shape and firm support. The high back provides comfortable support and the armrest effortlessly surrounds the body of the chair. The paper cord seat is hand-woven and the leather upholstered seat option comes with Vintage Leather from Sørensen Leather.

“It’s still one of the design I’m the most proudest of having designed. Not only by the looks, but the effort and work which we put in to the chair. From our drawings to the final chairs, damn, there was a lot of changes and modifications." - Rune Krøjgaard
