Named after the inspiring and historical front runner in Danish weaving Gerda Henning, Skagerak's new Gerda series is inspired by the iconic chequered tablecloth with references to the many magical summer nights spent outdoors around Denmark. By transmitting its form and pattern on to a metal construction with a perforated surface, the duo has found a way to reinterpret textile patterns and a Nordic campsite-atmosphere in a new and modern expression. The colours of the stool are likewise representing the melancholic, infinite depth of the Nordic sky that never darkens completely during summer.
Skagerak is a family-owned company with historical roots in Scandinavian geography and proud furniture traditions. Our passion for wood and our focus on quality have remained intact, as we have developed into a modern design brand with an extensive selection of contemporary products in a wide range of materials, created by established designers as well as up-and-coming talents.
We stand for responsible production, transparent working relations and good working conditions. We support and adhere to the United Nations' ten principles for CSR and only use legally sourced timber. Our products fall into three categories: Interior, Outdoor and Accessories, and we export to forty countries. We are proud of that achievement and attribute it to our efforts to create functional products for real life.
Design Public is an authorized USA dealer for all Skagerak Denmark products.
