Valdemar by Artificial/form

Danish designers Martin Kechayas and Christian Nørgaard of Artificial/form have designed this felt-upholstered wingback chair for furniture brand Normann-Copenhagen.

The low-slung chair's legs are also upholstered before being assembled.

Here's more from Artificial/form:

Valdemar chair for Normann-Copenhagen – a chair in a simple and modern design. The chair’s characteristic sides form a private sphere that gives room for a cosy atmosphere and relaxation. Valdemar is full upholstered and the chair legs are covered with fabric to form an aesthetic graphic whole.

Valdemar is designed by the two industrial designers Martin Kechayas and Christian Nørgaard. They have had focus on designing a piece of furniture with a beautiful graphic expression and great sitting comfort. The chair’s inside has an organic round form in contrast to the sharp and edged outside of the chair. That makes the chair exciting both visual and in use.

Martin Kechayas and Christian Nørgaard explain:” Nowadays there is a huge need for intimacy, calm and contemplation. For that we need furniture that creates room and space – a place of our own. The point of departure was to design a piece of furniture that is a lounge chair and an easy chair in one. Furthermore, you should be seated great and the comfort should be superb. We believe that a chair should be beautiful from all angles. Valdemar almost embrace the user with its big open arms and welcome the user.”

The chair is ideal for the home to create time and room. It brings character to the living room either as a part of the couch area or as a freestanding chair.
