The chair's rounded backrest narrows to a tongue-like section that curves underneath the seat.

A visible brass screw fixes the back section to a loop that curves up from the rear of the seat, and another screw underneath locks the two pieces in place.

"The Viggo chair has a two-shell structure, which gives the chair its high seating comfort and distinctive design expression, different from all other chairs," said the designers.

The chair is made from veneered plywood, in the tradition of some of the classic chairs created by Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Grete Jalk in the 1950s and 1960s.

    One of the best wooden chairs in a very long time.

    Lovely and elegant. It looks pretty simple from afar, but up close it is easy to see the amount of skill and time it took to create this piece. There are so many modern seating styles today, giving homeowners a wide range of designs that will work well with their tastes in home décor.
